hi all, i am new here and mainly here to seek advice as an adult who suspects i may have aspergers. i have always felt different but never really homed in on it until recently for numerous reasons and partly to do with finally facing this possibility. i have already approached my (nhs) gp/doctor which I found to be a massively uncompassionate situation on my gp's behalf not to mention I was told I would have to wait some time to speak to someone and I'm still waiting 2months later. i feel uncomfortable to press and pursue my doctor currently and just feel so discouraged and like im getting no where which frustrates me even more. also there has been some changes in my life in the past few years and i guess also with the covid situation lately, i feel like symptoms have been magnified and present themselves more obviously and more frustratingly in which coping mechanisms are no longer effective leading to me feeling more anxious, stressed and lack of control over myself coping in general, sometimes I feel like I'm losing and it's just all in my head, yet the rational side of me knows something is not as it should and I just need support or an answer.
my question is:
who can I approach for support and diagnosis/test as an adult of 40?
and what can i do myself to help my situation?
your probably thinking why don't I just search its easy, except I am finding this task very overwhelming specifically, to my surprise and feel more comfortable with this approach to reaching out for some direct advice or instructions from people already in the community.
