I am a middle aged woman living in the UK. I was diagnosed with dyspraxia 5 years ago and now wonder if I am also on the autistic spectrum. I currently work in a university with a student who has both AS and dyspraxia and although everyone is different, I do see many similarities in our experiences. In particular I often mis read social situations, and say or do things which others tell me are inappropriate. I have often been made to feel guilty about these misunderstandings and am told I don't understand how others feel. This is only a brief outline of some of the problems I think I have. Whilst I realise that self diagnosis can be dangerous, I am wondering if I have any chance of being assessed to see if I do have AS? I am given to understand that it is difficult to get a diagnosis as an adult in the UK under the NHS. However, I feel that I would like to know, so should I approach my GP? Or would I just be sent away and told to get on with my life? I feel as if I can't rest until I know the truth.
