Only if they're defensive, I'd say.

so I went.

it was interesting, he was very focused on talking to my partner and has insisted that my Mum comes next time. It feels very weird to be talked about like that. I have a tonne of leaflets and information as well as a tonne of tests and questionnaires. They estimated a wait time of 18months for a full assessment. So now I'm pretty much back to where I was before that.

Sorry to hear about the long wait, that's very frustrating.

yep, but now they have sent a letter saying that they do think I am on the spectrum, but they want to do the assessment to pin down where...so now I am kind of maybe a kind of Autistic-ish, they think...and I am less sure I know what to do with it and more sure I'm a bit annoyed it wasn't questioned before.

Bless you. Unfortunately these things can take time. I was lucky that I didn't have to wait that long. Think my wait was around 6 months.
now hand over the tea bags and we won't have any trouble.... :police:
