what on gods green earth do i do now??
I have a very long, and complicated life story. But do not worry, I will not bore you with the details. But i do need to explain some things...
First off, I am diagnosed as Autistic. I read and wrote at the age of 3 years and I have social deficits, along with sensory issues. However, I can make eye contact, I am the sarcasm extraordinaire and Im a bit more open to social occasions. Ive always been that way.
So Im thinking....im not autistic at all. Maybe Im Hyperlexic? The thing is though, I really can write well. Actually, I am a writer. Im creative and instinctive when it comes to spelling and grammer and such. What does that mean? Who could answer that question??
I have other learning defecits as well. Like for instance....the dreaded MATH subject. I can not read traditional clocks, I can not add past 10 + 10 (because I run out of fingers, and its socially awkward to break out the toes), as well as I generally do not understand the concepts of math (equasions, fractions, multiplication, division, adding large numbers, etc, etc.).
As well, I cant read my own handwriting. And its not just that. When I write or type my hand will get warm and start to cramp after not even 2 minutes. As well, I place letters backwards and put letters in the wrong places. However, I can spell amazingly. As stated above. But my handwriting is completely, and udderly, illegible. Its quite sad. Especially in school when I write notes. They are practically worthless.
But i think about this stuff, and I think there is NO possible way to have THREE learning disorders. Really, thats impossible, right??
So how do I go about testing?? I do have insurance. And my copays are usually small. But who do I go to? Are there specific doctors/MDs/PHDs who specialize in this sort of thing??
My sincere apologies for this massive novel. I hope you can stay attentive long enough to read such gibberish.
