Progress...maybe.

SO I saw my GP this morning...as I somewhat expected he said he didn't see any signs that pointed towards Aspergers or autism, but he did recommend therapy.

Right now I feel stuck in between feeling stupid for bringing up my hunch about having autism or relieved for being able to start therapy. Just a lot of confusion.

Not much else to say :/

:( I don't think I can handle/process that possibility - for me, the cons outweigh the pros of trying to bring it up with a doctor. All I know is that aspies seem like my long lost tribe - I don't know anyone else on the planet that *really* gets what I go through, even if they say, "oh yeah, that happens to me sometimes.." No. Not like that. I hope the therapist can see the real you, aspie or not.

I feel the same! As long as I come out of this process with a sense of understanding and clarity, I will be happy. I don't need labels but like you, I have found more in common with the autistic community than anyone else. Just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
