      Hello! I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression in third grade and with bipolar disorder when I was 32. I was just diagnosed as Autistic in March of this year and I am 49 years old. I also have ADHD and dyscalculia. Autism makes way more sense than bipolar.

      Ummm anxiety and depression mostly. Although "gifted kid" was definitely a label they gave me while ignoring my other symptoms :/

      Anxiety and depression. Their not wrong they are mostly likely caused by the autism and my struggles living without knowing what is wrong with me (obviously nothing, but that's not what it felt like growing up). I'm now 18 and have a the waiting list for 2 years but have been told by psychologists from the health service I'm waiting on that I am definitely autistic and possible ADHD too

      ADHD. Got that diagnosis as a kid by a school psychiatrist, when I got old enough to learn more about myself and things around me, I knew it wasn't right, but no one listened. Now I'm 19 1/2 and finally getting it diagnosed
