Firstly congratulations @OpenToSuggestions - having something like this confirmed can be a big step in understanding yourself. If you've always struggled with wondering whether you're "normal" or why you do and feel things differently to others, it's very validating to know there's a reason. It also opens up new ways to look into this and find the ways you can make your own life better. I've always felt at odds, like I'm fighting myself, especially when I'm trying to balance living my life how I want vs how social convention seems to be. Around a year ago a GP suggested an autism or ADHD test when I mentioned being depressed as fairly normal. The appointment was for a physical ailment but she asked some very insightful questions so I'm thankful she did that. As it happened I heard about a new service for ADHD assesments so I looked into that and eventually undertook the process. Even just filling out the questionnaires on symptoms and behaviours, started to highlight for me just how widely I'm affected. Things I always thought were just my own personality or "quirks", it turns out are recognised symptoms of ADHD. Who knew Ultimately I was diagnosed with mild/moderate ADHD but even just the assessment process really opened my eyes. It was intense and quite emotional, as it felt like the questions were almost targeting me by highlighting all the various struggles I've had. Similarly having my partner answer the same questions about me hurt a bit - "I can sometimes be talking to LuckyBenski and know his mind is elsewhere even though he's looking right at me". I still would like an autism assessment in the future but right now I'm working through the new information I have. Regardless of external treatment I am now armed with a huge amount of knowledge on who I am, how I work and how others have dealt with it. All thanks to some innocent questions from a GP.
