So today I was tested.
(Well, not really tested. They didn't want to test me because it was expensive and I have a graduate student stipend and I don't really need too much in the terms of accommodations as far as they could see. And I was unclear of what I wanted since I couldn't tell them how much I wanted to just belong, although I tried.)
So instead they walked me through the diagnosis (or informally tested me).
And told me that I would have qualified for Asperger's.
But that doesn't exist anymore.
And that I'm not autistic enough.
Except for social issues and sensory issues. I qualify under those apparently.
(By the end, I was a bit lost and confused because there had just been a lot of talking in the room and I could see the clock and it was one of the analogue types that you could hear ticking.)
So I'm not all that certain what was decided.
Last month, I would have been autistic.
Today apparently I am not.
(And really, I don't know if I am or if I'm not, now.)
