Yeah that makes a lot of sense. With my doctor belittling Autistic people and making it seem like having Autism was a crime, it definitely made me think that Autism was such a horrible thing at first. Of course, I have a friend who's Autistic and have done a lot more research, and when I saw how sim...

Yeah, my doctor said Asperger's was no longer a diagnosis either, but still diagnosed me with it and said I do NOT has Autism. So I was very confused! But it's nice to hear that you share a lot of these traits; if you were diagnosed with Autism and relate to a lot of my traits too, it's probably saf...

Hey, everyone. I posted recently asking what the difference between Asperger’s and Autism is, and which one I had. I appreciate everyone taking the time to respond to that post, and while I learned a lot, I still feel confused. The person who diagnosed me (who DOES have the credentials to do so and ...

To Gander: Yeah, I did think she wanted me to not associate myself with Autism, so I wouldn't have to "rely" on others or think I had something "wrong" with me. That's how she pretty much seemed to look at Autistic people, as needing support from others and being lower intelligen...

Update: I tried to reach out to my doctor/mental health specialist, but since I'm not on that site anymore, I can't send a message directly to her. I reached out to support and they said they can't give me any sort of diagnosis, from them or from her. So that went nowhere, and I don't have the diagn...

To starkid: I don't remember how much I paid. I didn't have any choice but to go with the online assessment though, as much as I wanted to go in person. She did need me to turn my camera on to observe me (I was reluctant at first but saw the reasoning behind it). There's just nobody even a few hours...

To IsabellaLinton: Yeah, she definitely seemed legit when talking to her. I'll reach out to her tomorrow to see if I can get a written report, but it has been a few months since I saw her, so I'm not sure how accurate it might be if she's doing it based off memory? We'll see, I suppose. Yeah, I hear...

To MountainGoat: Yeah they do seem very similar. I hope you find out a diagnosis for yourself soon! To IsabellaLinton: Yeah I paid to see her. I don't remember her credentials, but she WAS able to diagnose Autism and Aspergers; I specifically looked for those types of doctors. I'll try to look for h...

Hi, everyone! Thanks for all the responses. I'll reply to everyone's posts in the order of which they are posted! To IsabellaLinton: I don't actually know what a full assessment would consist of? I wrote a 12-page essay basically analyzing myself over the years, looking at a list of Autism traits an...

I recently got a diagnosis of Asperger's in December last year. Long story short, I always felt different and like I didn't belong. I finally went to see what was up, thinking it was Autism. But I got diagnosed with Asperger's, NOT Autism, and the person who diagnosed me specifically said that I was...
