I might have ASD, please advise

I started seeing a psychologist privately last week, for help with managing emotions and self-esteem and trying to come to terms with abusive upbringing.

Anyhow part way through our first appointment she asked if I had ever been assessed for ASD. I said no, but I do seem to have a lot of behaviour typical of people with ASD.

I want to ask anyone who uses MH board who has ASD did the Dx help you or was it a bad thing which just caused upset?

I am having this official assessment on Monday and looking forward to getting a definitive answer but not sure how I will handle the result emotionally.

On SN chat here on MN there is a thread for women who believe or know they are on the spectrum. I think for support.
