Just interested.

I have ADHD and general anxiety disorder as well as ASD (Asperger's). I do have social anxiety as well but that seems to be improving. I think I've got a bit of OCD as well.

I was officially diagnosed with GAD in my late elementary school years and have been receiving treatment since. I'm also prone to depression and moodiness.

Diagnosed

Long-term treatment-resistant depression
Social anxiety/phobia
General anxiety
Sensory processing disorder

Not diagnosed but probable

Borderline-OCD (probably wouldn’t quite qualify for a diagnosis, but I have significant traits)
Avoidant personality disorder
ADD

Not officially diagnosed but certain that I experience selective mutism (which isn’t actually selective on my part, I hate that name), both due to extreme social anxiety and due to mental/sensory overload, and also have some memory and cognitive issues caused by ECT.

Sheesh, I’m a mess :roll:

For sure depression, general anxiety and social anxiety.

But also PTSD and at least features of dependent and avoidant personality disorders, Idk sometimes I do have to wonder if its the comorbids causing more problems than the autism itself. I feel my autism did not bother me, until it bothered other people...if that makes sense.
