    You really expect that to happen? I dunno. Even if you’re right I’m still me. I don’t need an excuse for how I am, I need to change it and to be told that’s just how I’m wired isn’t something I wanna hear.

    It's not an excuse. Autism is never an "excuse"

    I didn’t mean it to sound like that.

    Using your experience and of what you have seen in me, can you not see the argument that it’s anxiety led rather than anything else?

    No. Anxiety and Aspies are different and manifest differently...

    But surely if it were Aspies I’d have had these struggles my entire life. I’m not sure that I have.

    Marc was diagnosed at the same time Ben was. It made a lot of things from his past make more sense. Especially things like relationships, being around people etc...

    Ryan has Dyspraxia thats diagnosed via a consultant, his gp however gave him a long list of things to tick if they applied to him and agreed that he has aspergers aswell Ryan chose not to have the diagnosis made official but it has helped him to have a bit more understanding of himself
