Today we went to the hospital for my KUB (Kidneys Ureters Bladder) ultrasound. We felt like employees arriving at 9:30 AM. After the ultrasound we went up for lunch and I had a smoothie. We then after that went to the Autism diagnostic finalization session. We spent about 45 minutes going through the results and it is final, I am CLASSIC AUTISM – HIGH FUNCTIONING AUTISM
This is very vindicating for me and my mom because now we have a final diagnosis that we can use to get proper therapies, help, and support for my autism. And also it can be globally recognized that I am autistic and have the paper to prove it!
Orders list is updated to reflect these two things, a new order for a Nephrology visit of unknown scheduling will be created.
The big bottom line here is I am OFFICIALLY DIAGNOSED AS HIGH FUNCTIONING CLASSIC AUTISM
