we are a new system and still trying to figure things out. My therapist recommended maybe getting a diagnosis especially since we are starting our second try with USA disability. We are split about it because another diagnosis that providers can discriminate us with. We already face so much with our other conditions. On the other hand, we can finally put a name to what we have going on. Is getting diagnosed worth the risks?

"Whether getting diagnosed is worth the risks largely depends on your personal circumstances. Some people find it beneficial to have an official diagnosis, as it can open up access to certain treatments and support. However, others prefer not to have certain diagnoses on their medical records due to potential stigma or discrimination, particularly in relation to jobs or career paths. It's a decision that should be made after careful consideration and discussion with your therapist."
