Has anyone been diagnosed with multiple conditions?

Hi there! I've been diagnosed with multiple mental health conditions. So far and in order it's been... 1. Anxiety DO 2. Major depressive DO 3. Post traumatic stress DO 4. ADHD I never found any start to relief until I started learning about ADHD, medication treatment for ADHD and everything just fits like a 🧩 piece now. But... I still feel something is missing. Has anyone also been diagnosed with autism spectrum DO and/or dyslexia / dyspraxia? The more I learn about it, the more I think it may also relate to what I'm going through. I can't afford the evaluation yet [$300+ out of pocket]. I have severe 1. Rejection sensitivity 2. A special blanket that has to be a certain material I like to fidget with especially if I'm super anxious 3. Special stuffed animals I cannot get rid of as an adult [they hold special meaning from special people in my life] 4. Need for coloring/legos or stem activities 5. Highly prefer to be alone and/or at home most of the time and struggle in crowds or going to parties. 6. I get confused a lot if others are joking and sometimes it takes a minute or two to understand their thought process [unless it's my spouse I live with, I have learned over 15 years when he is joking]. I think it may be high functioning but I'm not sure... Just looking for others like me to not feel alone.

Hi yes, ii had several disorders which prompted me to reseat neurological divergence and then I request my counselor test me for autism… autism presents like all the mental illnesses and learning disorders… extreme anxiety, rejection sensitivity, dyslexia- there aren’t many studies out there especially in women or in my case women of color so getting these these and diagnoses is literally going against our brain but just know that you’re not alone!

I also have HSP. Self diagnosed but still. All the things you listed i also have and struggle with. The autism bit as well so maybe that’s why HSP clicks, idk. Nice to know i’m not alone though

I would look into HSP — there isn’t medication 💊 for it that I know of but it helps you understand yourself better. 🤞🏻
