Autism Assessment

So yesterday was the first part of my assessment to see whether I am autistic or on the spectrum. It was a scary process for me because things came up which I really did not want to bring up again but having a better understanding of myself is what I need. I need to be able to look at people and know that there is a reason why I cant connect with others. If this gives me an answer then happy days if not then it can potentially be a stepping stone to finding out more about myself.

My second appointment is next week. I dont know how long it will be for but at least it will be one step closer to the truth.

  1. Hi 😊. A year ago, I was where you are, awaiting assessment. I was about 100% sure that I was on the spectrum, but needed to have my theory corroborated 😊. I was anxious the night before both my first and second visits! And afterward, I felt immense relief, especially after the second one, for the second one was the diagnostician telling me that I was β€œofficial” 😊. How do you feel? Are you doing ok?

    1. I’m rather nervous because i am doing this all on my own… my family is not supportive. Even the one family member who had my cousin who was on the spectrum doesnt support me so i am all on my loansom on this which could end up me being inconclusive or even a no 😦 i am worried because of that

      1. I hear you ❀️. I was on my own as well. Very uneasy feeling! My parents weren’t against it, but they weren’t for it, either. Just not interested 😦. That really stinks that your cousin on the spectrum doesn’t support you! 😳. I’m so sorry to hear about this. If your autism professional, the one doing your diagnosis, is knowledgeable in how autism looks in adults, I think you’ll be fine πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’ž
