Just Diagnosed, How do other cope with this?

Hello there!

I was recently diagnosed with PDD-NOS at the age of 36. This disorder seems to explain a lot of my behaviors as a child and as an adult. I was just wondering how other people with PDD-NOS navigate social situations. I seem to be socially awkward, and never really know what to do when I'm with a group of people, and sometimes even with just a few people. I know that I do not pick up on facial cues, body language, or even some spoken words when it comes to my conversations with others. So, if others can tell me what they do to get through social situations, I would be most appreciative.
