not knowing if i'm autistic


Im 45 suffering with depression and have felt all my life that i dont fit in!

i have never been able to fit in with social circles and when i try to chat to people i just cant hold a conversation like most people can.

i was diagnosed with dyslexia when i was young .

I've been a very angry person all my life and most people seem to stay away from me because of that!

ive been on and off of medication for depression for the last 10 years.

I've got to the point where i think that i may be autistic or something like that but im not sure how to go about finding out??

Does this sound familiar to anybody ?what can i do??

hope someone can give me some advice.... i know its a short and brief explanation but i thought just the key points may ring some bells..

thank you in advance!


  • hi mark my adult son went to his gp and asked if he could be reffered for an assessment, he was given a questioner to fill in at home, and then returned it, the gp then reffered him for an assessment,it took  a while however he was diagnoised with autism, which has helped him to get support in managing his anxietys and to understand how his autism affects him
