IDK, just thinking about some social interactions at work led me to believe this. IDK.

Even if you are, doesnt mean you are anything less than other people, you are worth just as much as everyone else, if this makes sense :hug:

There are communities which accept people who identify as autistic without an official diagnosis.

You could well be, Burt :)

I was first seen by a psych doc at 11 (who was later, I read in a paper), sent to prison for abusing young kids in his inpatient unit. Perhaps not the most reliable of doctors, you might say.

I have spent a lot of time in adult psychiatry, having a diagnosis of schizophrenia for many years, now removed. I have now been diagnosed with ASD, ADHD and 'tics' ( a euphemism for Tourette Syndrome, which I was more than likely case-closed with when I was 11). And this just before I was 50.

Splendid, isn't it. My view of the public services and do-gooders, health, social care and policing, has changed forever :)
