Even though I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 3, my parents don't seem to believe that It effects me at all, can anyone relate?

      My mother refuses to believe my autism diagnosis. My father had the idea to have me tested as a child but my mother refused and he isn't really in my life anymore. She says I am too intelligent to be on the spectrum, but learning disorders and the autism spectrum are two different things. It is especially frustrating since she hasexperience with autistic children. That said, I have learned not to look to get for approval, if she doesn't want to accept things about me, that is fine.

      I wasn't officially diagnosed with autism until a year or so just because my mother didn't believe I had any symptoms. But that's because she trained me to mask and hide everything my whole life

      as someone who wasn't aware of my autism until about 17, i totally understand. i'm sorry to hear your parents don't take you seriously.
