That's kind of a relief. XD I'd like to get a proper diagnosis and not have to self-diagnose myself. It's sort of goes against what I believe in. :c The problem I think too is that I don't want to lose my autism diagnosis. I'm so used to seeing myself as autistic that if I was to lose it... I might feel as if my entire life was an even bigger lie. I've been questioning whether I could have autism or dyspraxia, but I really just want to keep telling myself I have both (By the way, I have autism professionally diagnosed since age twelve just not dyspraxia). I did post this in my blog. It goes more into detail of why I feel that I have Dyspraxia. I could go into more than just that alone, but I lost track of the point I was trying to get across. ><
Wait, so you CAN have both Autism and Dyspraxia? Sorry. I just suspect I have Dyspraxia. I can't get a proper diagnosis unless I go through SSI again... or something like that. Bottom line is, it could hinder the SSI if I get a diagnosis of it. :c The more I learn about it for story and research purposes, the more I discover those little things about it that I relate to both now and as a child growing up. The weird part though, is that I never struggled with tying my shoes, zippers/buttons buckles, riding a bike (at least until my almost fatal-helmet-saved-my-life bike accident anyway but finding that a little irrelevant to my possible Dyspraxia diagnosis) or potty training. Yet, I have a lot of issues with gripping pencils. Sometimes, I grip so hard that I also add too much force on writing.
Anyway, I won't bore you with all of my needless details of how I think I have it or not though. Sorry! It just makes me a little relieved knowing that both can be diagnosed at the same time. I read that they actually can't be, but I shouldn't believe what I read since everything can occur with anything nowadays anyway.
