I am due to meet with a ‘professional’ on Monday 16th May (Monday week – help!) with a view to being given a label. I have been thinking for a while that this label would explain many things, now there is a chance that this will be recognised officially. I want this, cos it would make it easier to explain to other people why I function so differently! Whether or not I get the label I desire, I will still know in myself that this is why I am the way I am. However, I just think that being diagnosed may smooth the way in some situations.
The trouble is, I fear that the answers I give won’t fit the tick list that the medic will doubtless have. In some ways, being told that I am officially not that which I think myself to be would be worse.
Just had to get that out there. If any of you are the type that pray – please say one for me!
