Hi, i'm a 20 years old guy and i've been visiting a psychologist once a week for the last 8 months regarding social phobia.
2 months in, he confirmed my social phobia, but he also told me i could have asperger. Not knowing what it was at the moment, i researched about it and, for my surprise, i had most of the symptoms. He suggested a quiz for me (http://www.rdos.net/eng/Aspie-quiz.php) and got a 149 of 200 aspie score. From that point forward, even through it wasn't confirmed, i've diagnosed myself with asperger. Unfortunately, i didn't had much support from my parents regarding the syndrome.
After 4 months, i visited a psychiatrist and, 30 minutes of the first and only visit, he told me i didn't had asperger. After that point, i lost all my parents support regarding asperger, and i can't even mention it in front of them. My psychologist still thinks i may have asperger, but due to the pressure from my parents and the psychiatrist, he can't really decide.
I started getting confused about myself, since what i thought i was, suddenly, i wasn't, all that made sense to me, suddenly, it didn't.
Depression started to kick in, with some help from the social phobia.
Due to social problems and the asperger problems, i gave up university for the time being and spent the last 2 months "trapped" on my comfort zone, in other words, my room, which is being good for me, but its worsening my social phobia problem (I have a lot of complexes and i'm starting developing more of them).
I don't really know what to do, i really think i have asperger (made the quiz again recently and got a 164 out of 200) but everybody, besides my psychologist, still thinks i don't have asperger, all because of the psychiatrist, which i still think he misunderstood me.
Sure, self-diagnosis is enough for must people, but the problem is that i wanted people (at least the family) to understand me better, to know that i'm "weird" and "different" for a reason (especially on the interests part).
Am i just thinking to much? Maybe being professionally diagnosed asperger wouldn't change much and i'm just demanding too much?
I just know that i'm really confused and lost right now, it feels like all the world is negating me .
