I live in the florida area and would love to make some aspie friends or learn about resources for adults with autism in fort myers, FL. I am 24 and female.
Don't be sad about your diagnosis! Be happy that you now have a community to be part of! There is a thriving community on twitter and tumblr. Autistic individuals learn best from other autistic individuals. To keep the trolls from finding it I can PM you the tags, if you'd like. For now, I strongly recommend checking out the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) and reading the book "Loud Hands, Autistic People Speaking". -An autistic adult
