Hi, I am currently seeking a late diagnosis and am in my 40s.
I get the feeling that they have seen it all before. And the care you receive is not personalised. Just a kinda this is what I do when someone says x.
I asked for an Adult social assessment because I am not diagnosed and need some help. And I was told that because I do not have an autism diagnosis they will not be sending a qualified person from the autistic team. I nearly bit my tongue in half. I'm glad I had it in an email.
According to care law, they are supposed to use someone qualified to assess you. I decided to go for the test.
What happened was not a care assessment but a community care plan. That looked at me being able to use my phone to make reminders. I am fuming. It was like talking to a brick wall. I had my support worker and he was stressed. I was taking too long to talk with my stutter.
Is this a normal frustration
Or some kind of autistic thing to always have people follow rules?
What are peoples take on this?
Did you get a social care assessment or something else?
Any advice welcome.
I can’t get a single person to take me seriously since my diagnoses.
Yes to docs - but no surprise there. Docs are card board cutouts with as much knowledge as a table.
Since im now certified freak - I’ve noticed people who once took me advice now just ignore it. Even in my field of expertise - it’s like my opinion is now obselete.
I'm sorry to hear this.
