How do I know if I'm allistic? What are some autistic traits that could be masked by ADHD?

      I often wonder if I'm autistic as well as adhd. There's A TON of overlap in the traits, and ADHD is a spectrum itself (you might have some traits that others don't). A diagnosis would be the best way to find out, but look up dsm-5 autism criteria if you think you might be on the spectrum. You have to have every one of the criteria to be considered autistic I think.

        @Dnewell23 I am diagnosed under DSM-5 but I was told it doesn't cover autism
