Q. When were you diagnosed as autistic?
A. I was diagnosed in 2021, when I was 29 years old. However, I’d had a suspicion for a few years prior to this.

Q. Will you reach out to my trans son/daughter to try to change their mind?
A. I’m sorry, but this isn’t something I am comfortable doing. I’m usually happy enough to talk to anyone who wants to hear my story, but cold calling isn’t really my style.
