wanting to get assessed for autism Anonymous 65357

I have been struggling with this for the past 5 years, and its really starting to frustrate me. I really want to know what is going on with me. I already have been diagnoses with ADHD, anxiety, and OCD, but i just have this feeling that autism may be the root of most of it? At the same time, I am not sure if what im feeling even is autism, and if it isnt, then what is it? I just feel tired thinking about what part of me may or may not be adhd, anxiety, OCD or even autism. I wish I just knew for sure what was wrong with me instead of going through this awful process. theres so much I could talk about, but just thinking about tires me. I just want to get assessed… I am so tired.
by any chance, are there any miners who are attempting to get assessed? Doesnt have to be autism it could be anything really, i just would like to know if anyone has felt this way/is currently going through this.

Mother wanted me assessed, I resisted, didn't want anything to do with it. Allegedly I was already diagnosed as a child, though no one can find the paperwork anywhere. I'd say in the end it doesn't matter with your laundry list of problems I don't think you have a specific disorder as much as Munchausen's of the mental variety no offense.

I agree with this, but in my case having a name for my issue would bring me some closure/ressurance.

>I don't think you have a specific disorder as much as Munchausen's of the mental variety no offense

are you saying I am doing this for attention? or that I am just overreacting/looking too deep into it??

I'm saying you're taking an ideal of yourself, realizing you are not the ideal of yourself, and have now collected a laundry list of things "wrong" with you so as to feel better about how you are not the ideal of yourself. You've become absolutely invested at navel gazing at your own mental state and like a scab you pick at it again and again looking for reason why you're not high-functioning. If that's not the case fine, whatever. I don't know, has collecting your laundry list of diseases increased or decreased your quality of life as time goes on?

ah that makes much more sense, in that case then i'd say you are correct
> has collecting your laundry list of diseases increased or decreased your quality of life as time goes on?
somewhat, I think realizing my flaws/weaknesses has helped me to work on them and therfore, improve myself overall and quality of life. I think without my diagnoses, I probably would be way worse off. But as you mentioned:
>You've become absolutely invested at navel gazing at your own mental state and like a scab you pick at it again and again looking for reason why you're not high-functioning
this is a daily occurrence for me, and it causes me unnecessary anxiety and I am painfully aware of it. I think like most things, its hard to leave my flaws alone and I have to "smooth" them out. I wish I could just stop thinking and suck it up.
