My four week follow-up appointment with the doctor was on Wednesday. As expected, we agreed to up the dose of my meds from the introductory amount.

When I said that maybe the pills were just starting to take the edge off (but I couldn't be entirely sure) she said that I was under no obligation to say they were as though some people feel obliged to.

While we were discussing my current mental state and symptoms she suddenly asked if the possibility of autism or ADHD had been raised. I replied that I absolutely know I have traits of both but have always had to bring it up myself. A doctor has never before offered them up as contributory factors.

It's one thing to know for yourself that you have certain traits but another entirely to get even a glimmer of confirmation from a medical professional. I may discuss it further in the next appointment and see if she feels it worth pursuing.
