I Have a Feeling I might be autistic

According to my mother, I started talking full sentences once I was 2 years old, and I do remember a few memories from when I was that age. I can’t understand social cues or conversation structures. I get overwhelmed easily. I can’t complete simple tasks like taking a shower or tidying up because my energy gets drained easily. I’m sensitive towards my surroundings, it felt like this ever since I was a kid, but I never really talked about it to my parents or the people around me. What is my problem?


Hi @jawzilin

Thank you for sharing your struggles, I hear you and your feelings are valid.

Based on the information you provided, some of the experiences you describe could be associated with conditions such as sensory processing sensitivity or difficulties with executive functions. However, it’s important to note that a proper diagnosis can only be provided by a qualified healthcare professional after a thorough assessment - such as a psychologist or a specialist.

If you’re experiencing challenges in social interactions, difficulties with sensory sensitivity, and issues with completing everyday tasks, it might be helpful to consult with a healthcare professional or a specialist who can conduct a comprehensive evaluation to better understand your situation and provide appropriate guidance.

Also, perhaps open communication with your parents or those close to you about your experiences and seeking professional help could be helpful steps in understanding and managing the challenges you’re currently facing.

I want to encourage you that seeking support is a huge step of strength, so please continue to reach out. Let us know your thoughts and what you plan to do next? We’ll hear from you soon.
