I find a constant problem with coping mechanisms is that it involves doing things differently from other people and that you can be a victim of your own success and mask the problems of an already virtually invisible and lesser known condition.

I find in the work place that employers and team leads simultaneously want you not to use coping mechanisms, so that they can identify your problems and to use the mechanisms to minimise or even erradicate or work around your problems. Any ideas and/or experiences welcome! I am also interested in the experiences of other members attempts to get a proper diagnosis and/or registering as disabled.
