Hi!! I've found the autistic community online incredibly helpful. I was suspected autistic at age 4 but formally diagnosed at age 11.

I have many friends who are just finding out about their neurodivergence within the past few years.
I have found the most comfort in the online community, knowing that my struggles are shared and finding handy tips to deal with daily life.
Welcome to the family!

hey, I'm pretty sure I have autism but my parents won't let me get diagnosed because I get good grades, and growing up I didn't need much attention. Also growing up I didn't have any meltdowns (I did I just did it in my room because they would yell at me and I hate loud noises) and I was a super picky eater and still am because I can't deal with certain textures and feels and I used to cry every time I ate something with a weird texture. I also suffer from terrible anxiety and depression which I've heard tends to happen when people go undiagnosed for too long. Last year I broke down in front of my mum because I just wanted to know what was wrong with me and she still thinks I'm completely fine. idk does this sound like autism I might make a blog post abt this because this is just a tiny part of it or ill make a binder of it.

I was diagnosed by professionals with both ASD and Severe Social anxiety, though I protested the former diagnosis. And now they’re looking at what they’ve said is an "undetermined psychotic disorder" like schizoaffective or something like that, although I don’t believe I have anything like that. It’s maybe a way to get me to take more meds and SSRI’s which I feel will inhibit me negatively.
