      As a kid, shortly after I turned 5 when I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and some of my other issues that came later (psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, kidney stones, etc) are suspected to be extraintestinal complications of my UC. I'm grateful my parents believed me enough to seek answers because teachers certainly didn't and thought I was just using it as an excuse to skip school...

      I was only diagnosed with ADHD as a kid. As an adult, I've been diagnosed with multiple anxiety disorders, EDS, POTS, and MCAS. We also suspect Endometriosis, but that can only be diagnosed with surgery. My symptoms were always written off as "normal" growing up

      Adult. My parents wrote off all my symptoms as me trying to get out of school/chores as a kid/teen. It wasn’t until I started dating my now husband that I realized (with a lot of his encouragement) something wasn’t right with my body.

      I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2018, i was suspected of having it since I was 13. Upon investigation they think I actually was born with Endo deposits.

      A kid, I was about 15-16 when I started getting truly diagnosed but age 4 I already had been diagnosed with ptsd(later, into cptsd) and panic disorder and GAD when I was in a program meant to address these early onset issues

      I was 20 when I was finally diagnosed with autism. My younger brother was diagnosed when we were children, and I spent my whole life being ignored, and being told that I wasn't like him - I didn't need the kind of supports he needed, I needed to take care of him, to be more patient with him, etc. No one even thought to consider that I might be autistic, too, and now I'm facing burnout and struggling to find supports as an adult 😔 Aside from that, I was JUST diagnosed with fibromyalgia after living with "Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome" (A word that would make doctors either question me or roll their eyes due to being unaware of it) for years

      I was 16 at the time of my diagnosis(I only have two diagnosed at similar times, I suspect others but I don't want to deal with it yet and enjoy my denial at the moment)

      I'm 17 and I'm only diagnosed with amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome but my doctors are almost 99.99% sure I have fibromyalgia but it's hard to get an official diagnosis because I'm still a kid

      I was diagnosed with my most painful diagnosis late last year. I was still 18 at the time. I've been symptomatic for many years before that though.

      Most of my health issues I have had since baby and as I get older they just get worse. Or more things come up.

      I was diagnosed in 2007 when I was 13 with CRPS. One of 6 diagnoses but definitely my most painful.
