so i’ve been trying to get a formal adhd diagnosis for a while now, i got evaluated and everything and it still didn’t come out as a very clear diagnosis. but i’ve been noticing that i’ve been sort of meeting the criteria for autism? idk it’s something i’ve been thinking about for a while. i just don’t know how to bring it up to my therapist or anyone. at this point im pretty sure i’m autistic but i just don’t know how to bring it up to anyone. im afraid they’re just going to shut it down and say i don’t have it. idk.

      youve already gotten some great advice so i won’t bombard you with more but i just wanna say, we’re here for you regardless and don’t listen to stupid people who try to shut you down. you know when somethings wrong and only you and your doctors opinions matter. i never even speculated i had adhd until diagnosed and my dad still talks shit about me taking meds for it ! people will be ridiculous regardless so don’t worry too much

      Theyre very often confused for one another. Maybe youre not getting any diagnosis because theyre screening for adhd, not autism. All of my close friends are autistic or adhd and weve all had that “am I actually autistic/adhd” at least once. A lot of the symptoms are very similar but theres a few outliers that only apply to one. Maybe look into those?

      i’ve been feeling the same way, i’ve been diagnosed with adhd and take meds for it but symptoms stay and i have others that make me think i could be on the spectrum

      wait so if i’m understanding correctly i got evaluated and didn’t get diagnosed with anything? idk if that’s right but if so and u rlly feel like there is something happening i would just explain some of ur symptoms to ur therapist - if ur not comfortable saying what u think u have just say the symptoms u have been struggling with and maybe say you want to know what’s going on perhaps?
