  • psychiatrist appointment update: ran into a huge misunderstanding, cried a lot in my car. my mom helped me realize that the psychiatrist ACTUALLY diagnosed me rather than ignoring what i had to say and then some. he wants me to go to a neurologist for further testing, he thinks i may have some personality disorders as well :sweatsmile: :sob:

    im not sure, he didn't specify. he wants me to set up an appointment with his friend he knows who's a neurologist? he thinks a service dog is a great idea though, he thinks it could really help me. :)

    "his friend" hmmm. it´s always better to have a second opinion and a friend is not really independent. you could go to another neurologist additionally, who is really independent. also always be sure that he could be wrong or incompetent and so don´t believe everything. try to think about it yourself.

    Maybe you're masking less, which can sometimes be a good thing over the long haul

    The world is taxing at times. Sometimes you need to disengage from life in general. I am doing a three day disengagement. So l can just treat myself with kid gloves.

    thank you for all your help guys i appreciate it!
    i feel like i need an instruction manual on "how to mask for NTs" really been struggling these past few weeks, told my mom i need more support but i felt like she dodged the question, super sad and frustrated lately :(
    i brought zeus, my stuffed animal i take with me EVERYWHERE to work for the first time. only one person said anything but i chose to ignore it, im so proud of myself! also i found out disney has disability passes? if my boyfriend and i ever go i might see if i can look into it theme parks are quite overwhelming for me. :)
    update: telling some of my family about seeking out an asd diagnosis went okay, they still have their doubts but im trying to understand they're trying:sweatsmile:
    today's the day! going to get my go-to starbucks drink (iced chai tea latte with matcha cold foam) for support.
