Sara’s introduction

Hello All! My name is Sara and I’m 44yo, queer, Autistic, and ADHD. I was diagnosed at 42. I’m Gen X, and we really are the “forgotten generation,” especially as far as ADHD and ASD diagnoses go. I showed so many signs growing up (see my blog, I have a post about this), but growing up in the 80s, ADHD and ASD were things only “boys” had.

I am a Special Education teacher at a high school. However, I have worked with students in grades K-5. I usually teach summer school, but had a terrible time last year, so I’m taking the summer off. I might start a mini online business. Just for a little extra money.

I have many special interests, such as cats, animals in general, history, reading, and creating art.

I love giving advice when I know the subject of the question. Please feel free to leave comments!

  1. Hi Sarah! Glad to see you here. While I don’t blog exclusively about autism (topics range from politics to food and drink and everything in between), historically it is a large part of my writing.

  2. Welcome Sara and I gave your blog a follow!
    I am 42 and have the same dx which they also missed because a) I wasn’t a boy and b) my iq tested rather high so nothing wrong with my brain.
    Welcome to the site/team and I’ll check out your blog asap!

    I got my dx at 31, ass (Asperger’s back then) and ADHD with focus on the H. Shortly after dx I also got chronic depression added to the list. I’d love to help out if needed. English is not my 1st language, but I’ll do my best any way that I can. 😊
