      I have suffered from Autism my entire life and any questions you might have I would be glad to answer if I am able to.

      Another auDHD (slang for Autism-ADHD) potentially! Or ADHD or ASD — Either way, happy to see you’re on a diagnosis journey! Stay hydrate, I currently don’t have any big huge life advice for it since I just had my first session on November 22nd, but I will let you know that as soon as I got confirmation and medicated I felt myself unmask a little more / show a lot more hallmark signs of having both. Something about having a diagnosis basically removed the “what if” portion of me guilting myself into thinking “maybe I don’t have xyz”. Overall, getting a diagnosis and/or medication does let you unmask a little! So precautions there: You might feel a little energetic the first two days or so, haha. 💌🙏

        @Freddi Definitely give the above comment a read—I self-diagnosed as ASD due to the genetic history in my family, and even my psychiatrist said that even if we went through the process of diagnosis, there’s no medication for ASD available at this current time.
