I find it hard to get a diagnosis. Insurance doesn’t cover it and it’s not recognized in adults. I finally found a Dr who is willing to get me started with it. He needs to solve my thyroid problem first, so he can separate the issues. Even though, all of this has gone on all of my life and we learn to adapt (not usually very well) and never understand why we are adapting, we do it. All stuff you can understand, I’m sure… Anyway, my point was that getting a diagnosis is very important to me for an official explanation for why things are how they are. That I don’t communicate like others and that they don’t need to always be offended. Trust me, if I want to offend them, I can. I don’t think I’m offending them, but I am. I feel so misunderstood and hated, everyday. I haven’t done anything wrong to anyone, I say things the wrong way, I don’t look at them when I speak and I ask questions that seem the same as the last question I asked but really, I changed a couple of words to get a different kind of answer and that drives people nuts. They get frustrated. I work in a very technical field and I need to understand EVERYTHING. I have a crazy passion for my work. Obsessive.
