I have ADHD, but often feel more similar to autistic people. I know for a fact that I have ADHD, but definitely feel as if there is something more than that. I cannot afford to get diagnosed, is there any other way to help confirm these beliefs? And does anyone else have the same struggles?

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

      If you use reddit, there's a subreddit there, I think it's r/AutisticwithADHD or something. I also have an ADHD diagnosis but no ASD diagnosis, and that helped me.

      They are*very* commonly comorbid (occur at the same time) so it definitely wouldn't be surprising! It would be worth looking into symptoms and seeing how they align with yours, and trying coping skills for autism specifically

      It's insanely common to have both and they have a lot of similar symptoms and coping mechanisms/treatments. I would suggest looking into a number of creditable sources for symptom differences and comparing how your symptoms add up. But because of the similarities in experiences even if you don't have both its fully understandable to relate to both
