Brief Answer:
I can help you to diagnose whether you have autism

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query carefully and understand your concerns.

I, myself can help you to detect whether you have autism. However, first of all, I would need you to elaborate on the condition. Based on your inputs I would possibly ask you to fill a checklist which would help in excluding autism in your case.

I would await your response. Let me know if I could help further.

Regards

I have already taken the Autism/Asperger's Quiz on Psych Central and I scored 43 were 34 & up is Autism likely. I also took the Short Autism Screening Test, I scored 38 were 31 & up is Autism likely. I need to find a doctor in XXXXXXX Mi or as close to XXXXXXX MI as I can, who can put in writing that I have Autism. I was told that because I'm over the age of 22, the only one who can do that can do this is my family doctor. My current doctor will not even listen to about this, he says to talk to my psychiatrist, but he think I'm BPD and I'm not.
