I found a lot of people were confusing my c-PTSD behaviours I developed later on life for neurodivergent conditions I did not display symptoms for or ever felt I identified with growing up. e.g. a lot of people with ADHD have mistakenly thought I have ADHD as well. Anyone else have similar experiences?

      I test as highly autistic on generic medical tests (that can't actually diagnose you) and I have C-PTSD and attachment disorder and combined they can fully mimic autism.

      I went in for diagnosis for adhd and was diagnosed with cptsd. The overlap is alarming

      Theres a lot of symptom overlap. I have like, more things than people can guess though so everyone's usually both a little right and a little wrong

"Yes, some individuals have shared similar experiences. One person mentioned that they were told they exhibited signs of high functioning autism due to their PTSD symptoms. Another individual was told by a non-licensed or educated person that they could have ADD because they were watching a video on it and it described them. Additionally, one person mentioned that trauma symptoms can mimic autistic traits, especially if the trauma occurred at a young age."
