      However the outcome(diagnosis), you will be alright. Don't let your great/nervousness overtake you. Good has you covered and He has already worked out it for you. Whatever emotions you feel based on your results, let them out, and then reset and be determined to make the most of it. Be educated and be positive. Everything works for your good, no matter how it sounds or looks. You got this!!!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

      If you donโ€™t mind me asking, who are you seeing for a diagnosis and how did you find them?

        @IndigoBro I've done it via my school/college. I got a friend to 'report' it saying they think I am autistic. Then my school has helped and they ahve a specialist in the school who is helping me

      Be honest, be yourself and if you receive a diagnosis know that it is OK, and it doesn't change who you are, it makes it who you are! There is nothing to be nervous about, when I received mine I was relieved as I had an answer as to why things were the way that they were, you will be ok, it'll be a lot to process but process it at your own speed and pace so you can fully understand it and what help/support is out there for you

      Take your time to answer, think about the questions. If you're not sure on the question ask them to clarify. Or say "Do you mean 'this' or 'this?" if the question could mean two things. Think about your struggles on your worst day and answer accordingly. I was honest on mine and said I was anxious. They asked why and I said "I don't like being analysed". It meant I could relax a bit because now they knew that bit of information.

      It's alot to process. Be yourself you will get the best results. Tell them how you are struggling. This will help them with there decisions. Alot they ask you may seem childish but just flow with it the best you can. Best of luck to you.

      It depends where you live on what to expect. I'm in the UK and every area does it differently according to FB group posts. I'm in NE England and personally have had 2 totally different types of assessments. First one was just a 2 hour chat, which for me was a complete waste of time as I was told I couldn't be Autistic as one, I was female, 2 I'd been married and 3 had children. This was only 6 years ago! I asked for reassessment and was sent to different place where I had a few sessions that involved practical tests such as having to tell a story from picture book (no text), being shown photos of people and being asked what I thought they were thinking, etc. Got diagnosis no problem.
