32yo Male from Australia

Hi brains, first post.
I’m from the ACT region in Australia and currently undiagnosed but seeking.
During 2019, my wife and I noticed possible indicators of ASD and ADHD in our daughter so i started researching both conditions. Digging into them, particularly reading Tony Attwood’s work on Asperger’s Syndrome, I found a LOT of parallel with my own experience, both currently and during my earlier life.
Researching also led me to the tribe here on HowtoADHD as well as the network throught TheAspieWorld.
I have struggled with mental health issues throughout my life, and actually succeeded in healing some damage through psychological support but this is the first time I’ve found a hypothesis that actually explains the cause.

I am currently seeking diagnosis this year, for me, my wife (who also shows a lot of markers as well) and both our children.

Lovely to meet you all.
