I was diagnosed with autism when I was 13 but my parents didn't believe the psychiatrist. I forgot about it growing up then remembered randomly last year. So as an adult, I self diagnosed and did my own research and I'm still learning about myself and trying to unmask. But whenever I unmask around my family, they say things like "Why are you doing that? That's weird" How can I approach my parents and have this conversation with them? I want them to accept me but I'm not sure if they will.

      So I grew up with my siblings both being autistic and my parents tried to help but they just didn't understand the concept. I have been putting in research and reporting my knowledge with my parents. They obviously didn't listen much but I was there for my siblings so that's all that mattered. So if they wont support you, find someone who will.
