so i had to have a video call with a psychiatrist because i have anxiety and it’s gotten worse during lockdown (i had a panic attack and an ambulance was called). she asked me to leave the room so she could talk to my mum. turns out she suspects that i have Aspergers (autism). supposedly i was born with it and i only just found out. i don’t know what to think. i’m waiting for a formal diagnosis. i did some research and it turns out i have never been diagnosed because autism is seen to be a “men’s disorder” and professionals just aren’t trained to spot it in females. i feel like my whole life has changed. i’m kinda scared.
