Hi - I am going for an NHS adult diagnosis in a few weeks' time.
Both of my children have NHS diagnoses, as does my husband (!!) All Are HFA / HF ASD.
I went to the Women and Girls NAS conference in 2012 and felt that they were talking to me as much as my children. I score a 43 on the AQ and something quite low like 18 on the EQ.
I am seeing a consultant psychiatrist who runs an ASD/ADHD clinic, so i am seeing the right person, afaik.
I have written up as much of my life as I possibly can, with my mother's help. She lives on another continent so all i have are my friends and my husband, who so far isnt being very supportive.
What do i need to take with me? I have found old photographs that, in my mind, reinforce things, so should i take them along?
Does anyone have any advice for me? I am very nervous. Obviously if the shrink doesn't think I have AS / ASD, or think i have something else, i will then have that to contend with. :/
