i think i’m autistic but i haven’t been diagnosed yet. when i first brought it up to my psychiatrist about a year ago, she didn’t really listen to me and just dismissed my concerns. i feel like i have a lot of autistic traits that don’t really line up with any of my other conditions. help?

      thank you for the advice! i’m not going to switch because she’s usually a pretty good psychiatrist with the exception of that instance, but i’ll definitely be doing more research and doing all that, thanks so much

      Are you able to switch psychiatrists? It’s not good to have your concerns dismissed- I’ve experienced that during my ADHD diagnosis. Otherwise and especially if you’re not able to, do a lot of research into symptoms and get comfortable with the label. Write down what habits/actions/reactions you have that help to solidify being autistic to you. If you are comfortable, present that to the psych (if you are still seeing them).
