I’ve never been to a psychiatrist or anything like that (because it’s expensive in my country) so I’ve never been diagnosed of Asperger’s, but some parts of this made me cry because I’ve never felt so understood in my whole life. He was describing me, my confusion, my struggles, and what was going on in my mind during my childhood.
I actually zone out if I try to look at peoples eyes when they’re talking. I spend so much effort staying ‘connected’ to the eyes that I loose track of what’s being said
For female Aspies, do you think its possible that a life of misdiagnosis and isolation after trying so hard to fit and never really getting it, could lead to feeling empty, a problem with identity and emotional regulation….what i am getting at is could a lot of these girls be being diagnosed with personality disorders rather than autism and is that why they are so difficult to see and help?
