Mia,

Thanks for your reply, it’s the kind of thing I was hoping to find by making this post, anyone with a similar experience. It’s a relief to hear that you were able to get a diagnosis without relying to significantly on others opinion of you as a child. I’ve been pulling apart my brain since my last appointment, trying to think of what my thoughts and feelings were as a kid, and I think there is more evidence there than I had thought.

Like I said in my original post, I’m waiting on a second referral at the minute and not sure how long that is going to take, but I just need to talk through my childhood with my parents a lot more before this next appointment and hopefully whatever the outcome I’ll feel like I’ve done everything i needed to to get on track to figuring out what’s going on!

Thanks,
Ryan
