Hello from NYC - new member here

Hi all,

I live in Queens, NYC.  For the past 7 years I've lived with a boyfriend who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in around 2001.

He and I both feel that I'm at least as autistic as he is, at least if one goes strictly by the current defining traits of ASD, although he is more disabled overall (e.g. he has a speech impairment).

Just yesterday I had my intake appointment to begin the diagnostic process.
