Changing relationships pre- and post-diagnosis

Posted by: alisrowe, December 22, 2016

An awkward scenario I find myself in is when I come in contact with someone who knew me before my diagnosis. Last year I met up with an old classmate, who I had not been in touch with since university. When discussing what we’d been up to, I mentioned the curly hair project, and of course this led to further questions… eventually with me disclosing that I’d been diagnosed as autistic some time after the end of my degree. The young man’s response was something like “Oh… ok.”
