Autism/ASD Diagnosis as an Adult

I've recently come to the conclusion that I exist on the neurodivergence spectrum and it has been a whirlwind of a journey.
I'm looking to be professionally diagnosed and I've joined a few supportive communities that discuss these topics.
As an autistic, what are some of the struggles you've had with the medical community? As an adult autistic, have you been able to easily access the resources you need and if not, what kind of struggles did you face?
What was the process of being diagnosed like for you; or, alternatively were you able to get diagnosed and what are your thoughts on it?

Thanks for any feedback.

I’m struggling to find resources for my family. We are on a fixed income and would really like to find resources to help us navigate through my mother’s mental health needs. We want to do it as a family to encourage her to get the help that she’s needs. It’s been very difficult finding resources that we can afford and that work with our busy schedules. If you have any recommendations please let me know!

LEARNING helped me heal from Schizo-Affective disorder

How did I recover from Schizophrenia? I’ve not fully healed, but I live a life I love and would like to share my story.

Eighteen years ago I suffered a terrible psychosis. My whole life and family were thrown into complete turmoil because of my mental illness. The time I spent in the mental hospital away from my newborn baby and husband was traumatic, it ultimately ruined my marriage, so on top of Schizophrenia I developed PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

It’s been a long, LONG, journey of recovery. Before my illness I had no trouble working or making money. I had just gotten married, life was so happy… then everything was very suddenly turned upside-down.
