I’ve been diagnosed with Autism, probably Aspergers syndrome, two weeks ago. I had an evaluation meeting and they told me that I have that. I was completely in panic, because since november last year, I constantly hear: yeah, you do have autism (pdd-nos), no you don’t have autism, you maybe have autism. So, I was like: Do I have autism, yes or no? I want clearity now! But I didn’t tell them, because I had the plan to tell that at the evaluation, but before Icould say that, they already told me I DO have autism, and probably aspergers syndrome, but that doesn’t matter anymore since the dsm-iv. Since I know I have autism, and probanly aspergers syndrome instead of pdd-nos I can accept things more. If someone tells me I’m doing something in a weird way, I’m like: oh, that’s probably my autism. Instead of: oh, I’m getting crazy, you see, I’m weird. So it does help me that I have that diagnosis. I hope I can find a way to deal with myself and unknown situations, because that’s a part that’s really difficult now. And I hope my parents and my sister will understand me better now.
