Misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis. Disbelief from doctors and mental health professionals after you explain your symptoms. Being shuffled from one doctor to the next with no help in sight. Giving all your energy to taking care of your mother or your child, so that there is nothing left to take care of yourself.
Millions of neurodiverse women struggle everyday to get support from their healthcare and mental health professionals that actually improves their lives. So many of us are not getting our health needs met, and are falling into more anxiety and depression because of it. What could society do better to help us?
Today, I am honored to present interviews with Lauren Melissa @autienelle, Dominica @the_ADHD_dynosaur, and Meg @arfidawareness to discuss their experiences getting help from medical and mental health systems for themselves and their families, what worked and what was a disaster, and what could be done to help neurodiverse people.
