Yes. 1st dxed with schizophrenia in 1975.The dx has changed over the years but came full circle back to sz in 2019/2020. The Asperger's dx came in 2019.

Autism and schizophrenia diagnosed here, although I dispute the latter. I have been unable to access a psychiatrists with expertise in autism. They are sorely lacking. Have a great day.

I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar 1 (manic phase) and borderline personality disorder one month after three weeks in a psychiatric intensive care unit where the psychiatrist could find NO evidence of mental illness, just autism. I consider it unhelpful to be involved with doctors with no expertise in autism, and potentially harmful if they happen to be a psychiatrist! Unfortunately! (see previous). The bipolar 1 (manic phase) I found all the more absurd as I happened to be sleeping excessively at the time. Anyone in the UK who has access to a psychiatrist specialising in autism? I would be shocked and delighted.
