What have your experiences been?
Am increasingly worried that I have gone undiagnosed for years. I get episodes of insane creativity, uber-social-wonderfulness, and total brilliance, and then days where I can't, won't and don't do anything, ever, and can't concentrate at all, and get worried, and think I'm being watched, and generally want no part of anything at all, including existence.
This has been exacerbated by two things...
1) Our government IS building a ludicrous surveillance society in this country and it's a daily source of utter, utter woe
2) My mother expressed her surprise the other day that I hadn't actually been diagnosed when I was working as a teacher.
However, there are two other factors to consider:
1) I'm an attention-seeking hypochondriac who at various points has been convinced of being a) Aspergers b) Tourettic c) everything else under the sun.
2) if I get diagnosed, it'll fuck up my chances of holding down a job, and I'll have to go on medication, and I would hate either of these two eventualities.
