Hi I was after some help. I’m wondering how people in the UK get diagnosed with autism by other ways than the NHS. There’s been a mistake with my referral and it has not been done apparently according to my mental health worker so I’m having to go through the referral again which is a 3 year waiting list. Iv been diagnosed with various mental health problems over the years and the last few months I have been exploring the possibility of being on the spectrum with my therapist and mental health worker. Being autistic makes so much more sence to me and how iv been all my life. I’m 34 and a self diagnosis seems to have just clicked with me and explained so much especially the sensory stuff and iv realised iv been “masking” for years. I did a few online tests yesterday and scored extremely high on all of them. I don’t want to have to pay loads to get diagnosed privatley but I’m hoping a diagnosis will open up a new world to me and a way of coping with life. Thank you for reading my comment. #AdultDiagnosis #Autism
World Autism Awareness Day
A different way of expressing yourself by the way a question is asked
Autism can be overwhelming on a daily basis. Our minds have 1,000 plus things going on in our heads.
For me I have so many ideas that it gets overwhelming. One way to help myself to keep a level head is to keep a digital to do list.
I know some people like paper but paper overwhelms me because it gets messy and it just stacks up.
