Testing

So on Friday my counselor had told me that I display autistic tendencies and she was shocked that I was never tested for autism when I was younger; and she had also asked me if how I felt about the sounds of vacuums since I hate noise. And I told her I hated them since they’re so loud. Anyway, I’m hoping then I on my next appointment on Friday we can talk about it more in depth and I can get tested soon. Since last week we talked mainly about my ocd.

Good and you will finally get the support you need!

Thanks I just don't know if she can do it or not or if I need to go somewhere specific for it. But if she says I display autistic tendencies than there must be something going on I guess

But, I don't know if I should tell my parents until I get tested or not.

It is good, if you tell them - you can get their support and if you have learning disability as well you can finally get help, with exams even - you are given more time. Autistic people sometimes have sensory issues as well - more on national autistic society website There are some cheap autism awareness courses as well. Myautismteam has online support for people looking after autism family members or who themselves have autism!

I would just hate to tell them if I don’t. And I’m out of college so I haven’t taken exams in a long time. But it could explain why I have a hard time driving and can’t pick up a penny or a gift card off a store floor; as well as walking in the grocery store parking lot today and tripping over myself and almost falling.
