A Psychiatrist there said "Autism Spectrum Disorder Level One." Used to be called Aspergers. It is STILL hard to accept but the more I start to accept it the better I be cont.

I feel this. I’m pretty 50/50. Im eager to get to the bottom of this. To get confirmation. However there are days When I’m like “ wait no i dont want that to be written in stone on my record”.... i know I’m “different “ . But there’s something bittersweet about getting that diagnosis when you finally do find someone willing to hear you out:/... ( imo)
