I just realized I have high-functioning autism (Asperger’s) at 27. It’s explained so much about myself that I couldn’t understand before. I was getting diagnosed with it at 19 but my mom flipped out and didn’t want me to get the diagnosis (stigma fear) so I stopped the process. I scored high on AQ test and my sibling has moderate autism, and my other sibling has bipolar (genetically related to autism). I was then diagnosed generalized anxiety, but now I know my triggers, which they said they couldn’t possibly identify.
I’m going to be getting it officially diagnosed by a psychiatrist. I made an appointment with my doctor for a referral.
Just hoping to hear from other Aspies and hear your experience and how you got diagnosed (either by yourself or officially). [name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to ask questions or share anything you like!
