So I had to come clean to my parents about the possible Autistic Spectrum Diagnosis (ASD) Evaluation. I had my mom fill out a form the specialist gave me to fill out for my primary care giver or parent. She filled out some and my sister looked over it and thought it was insufficient as my mom was looking through “rose tinted goggles” so she changed some answers and I had her fill out other sections where I knew she knew the answers, aka not the birth-3 years old. The specialist called the day before I was suppose to have the appointment and need to ask my mom some questions for clarification. I thought “oh no” and now I gotta tell her the truth. So I told her about my most recent Sensory Processing Disorder and how I’ve always had the social awkwardness that now seems a little more than just social anxiety and paired with my poor motor skills they think I might be on the Autistic Spectrum. I also told her when the specialist called not to answer questions with what she thinks I can do but with what I currently do do. He just asked about 10 questions about when I was a baby and a toddler and now I have to wait a week and a half for results! I wish this process went faster!
