I finally had the video call on Monday,
After completing the seventeen-page questionnaire…
That questionnaire was never-ending,
And I had a lot to say,
With no problem with writing… 😉;
Writing is one of my crazy strengths,
Contrasting with more basic things which I can struggle with;
This kind of ‘spiky skill profile’,
Can be characteristic of autism,
And the psychiatrist agrees with me!
“Robin is a 33 year old man presenting with symptoms that have been present since childhood.”
“Robin meets the diagnostic criteria for Autistic Spectrum Disorder.”
Step one is now completed,
A significant milestone which will help me greatly,
And for the first time in a long time,
I’m in the mood for celebrating! 🥳
The next step,
Is OCD assessment :).
Thanks so much to all the people who helped me to raise the money for the cost of the private assessment,
And the people who generally support me here! 💙
I will try my best to repay my Karmic debt to the universe :).
