    Currently undergoing diagnostics and unsure how to act.

    Hello, I’m 23, and have been in and out of therapy for years now for depression, anxiety, and related complications. My therapist now believes I might have high functioning autism. I’ve had my own suspicions about this for some time, but now that a professional has also reached that...
