A note from Permit:
“When this was recorded in December, 2019 I was under the assumption that I was on the autism spectrum. In January 2020 I had a neurological assessment and in February 2020 I received a diagnosis of OCPD (Obsessive-Compulsive Personality Disorder). ASD and OCPD have very similar symptoms, but their treatments and coping strategies are very different. I recognize the privilege that I have in that I was able to pay out of pocket for an assessment and diagnosis and not everyone is so fortunate. I want to express to my fellow neurotypical/neurodivergent folks that your self-diagnosis is valid and I support your efforts to exist in a world that is not built for us. However, I would also encourage you to get an assessment if you have the means to do so. Understanding the nature of what makes me act and think the way I do has been more helpful to me in the last 18 or so months than anything else in my life. I hope you are able to get the same foundation for yourself.”
