I don't know if I'm autistic but I believe I carry various traits of the condition. I do have a medical condition called Hydrocephalus, which means "water on the brain," and it's to do with the filtering of the cerebrospinal fluid in the head. I think this condition maybe responsible for autistic behaviours, which would make sense to me considering my repetitiveness, OCD and odd obsessions.

I'm not sure if I should get tested for autism, but I think it would bring clarity to why I am the way I am.

Are any of you autistic and have you been formally diagnosed with it?
I'm on a long waiting list for a diagnosis
