Hi! I'm Carys and I'm neurodivergent. I haven't been formally diagnosed with autism, but you'd have to be pretty oblivious to look at me and say: "that is a neurotypical person." I mean, I have wayyy too many symptoms. I came on here in hopes of making friends that I can actually relate to. :)

      I can so relate! I’ve always had a sinking feeling that I don’t only have ADHD. I wasn’t sure that I might be autistic until I married a formally ASD diagnosed man. I was diagnosed with ADHD before they were allowed to diagnose both so I think that might have something to do with it.

      I’m self-diagnosed too! And very autistic 😅

      It’s actually more beneficial for your career to get the diagnosis. The best conversation I’ve had with my boss was when I explained what the autism spectrum was, what common symptoms were, and how they manifested in me. Beforehand my boss had a big misunderstanding of some of my behaviors which affected our relationship and how he saw me as a worker, but now we’ve come to common grounds on what each of us value and how we can best support each other!

      So I can relate on the end of having symptoms without the formal diagnosis

      My therapist told me I should get the test done but I don’t want the formal diagnosis to hinder my future job career options. But they’ve been trying to get my parents to test me since I was little

      I'm exactly the same way honestly, some of my autistic friends even asked if I was and when I said no they said "maybe you should get that checked out.." lol
