Reflections on nonverbal learning disorder/aspergic traits/dyspraxia
I tried discussing my problems in that area about 8 years ago and the topic was cut dead after I was asked 2-3 irrelevant questions. Have not had the courage/nerve to press ahead as past attempts to get more help saw me branded as awkward,demanding and troublesome and a very dependent narcissist. Don’t wish to face more abuse by raising the subject myself . Nurse practitioner did use the term autistic to something I said and I did mention NLD but she quickly hinted there was nothing they could do . I’ve reached the conclusion I will never get help for it. It is probably too late at 59 to make much difference anyway. The sad thing is If I had got help and a listening ear when I had my first crisis as a teenage in patient nearly 41 years ago instead of being branded an awkward and troublesome teenager it might have made a big difference to things being picked up on. Bitter and frustrated? You bet.
Some mental health workers are pure scum.
