i am 10/10 convinced i have autisim, i had an autistic friend tell me i'm "worse" than him, i fit into most traits/symptoms, and i feel like it makes the most sense for me. should i do something? my worst fear is asking my psych and she completely disagrees.

    If you think your autistic and you have most traits you probably are. I had a phycologist tell me i wasnt and it was just anxiety however now im diagnosed with autism. Look into your childhood if you’re second guessing it you may not show obvious signs as a child as you may have been masking etc but you will see some if you look deeply. Hope it all goes well and i would definitely talk about it maybe write down your traits to show them. 💗

    If you truly believe you’re autistic, then there’s no reason to see a doctor to get tested. It would just be a waste of time & money. And like you said, they could potentially disagree which would cause a lot of issues

    I had this fear too. If there are accommodations for you if you were diagnosed or if closure means a lot to you then I would consider asking about it. I really wanted closure so I did it. Maybe ask her if she specializes in autism?

    If you want to get tested, you should, but you don't have to! Unfortunately, with women, diagnosis is more uncommon because most doctors won't take it seriously if it's a woman
