Hi Kenny,As far as I can tell most GPs don't have a clue about autism. My GP asked me to describe how I felt and then told me that autistic people have no ability to express feelings. ::) However, he offered to refer me to the appropriate mental health service if I really wished. After a very long wait I was eventually diagnosed as high functioning asd. I was actually hoping that it would prove I wasn't but just needed to know, they also advised that if they think that the diagnosis would be detrimental to my overall well being they would not give a diagnosis. I would suggest keeping an open mind and seek the advice of a professional with the proper credentials. Good luck.
