I was in my 30s before I sought diagnosis, and it was as if a light suddenly came on. I could see the whole picture and see how the signs and symptoms had been there all along. It was gratifying, but also frightening. Just because I could put a name to my behaviors didn't mean I was going to be able to change them. I was scared that it wouldn't make a difference, but I was wrong. Getting diagnosed was the best thing I've ever done for myself.
