  2. I’m sorry you had to go through this.
    Thank you for using your voice and speaking up for our community. It means a lot to me. I know I am PDA now mid 30’s (always thought it was Aspergers). My young daughter fits the PDA profile. I can’t bring myself to see a “professional” especially if they are like this one you saw.
    I hope you get the result you want as regards medication x

    • I know what you mean. Thankfully she’s the worst I’ve ever seen and I’ve seen a few! Only one that I’d recommend though. The rest were just okay. Limited but okay. She just comes across as curt, angry and resentful. Her tone of voice is very measured and sarcastically calm. Imagine her saying “have a nice day” and you’ll be spot on! Patronising! Don’t let my story stop you from seeking advice/support if you need it. There are a few awesome psychiatrists and psychologists out there and more and more have awareness and understanding of PDA. They are few and far between but you can ask for referrals to people who can diagnose PDA. 💜


  3. Oh my goodness, this is just like a meeting u had recently with my 21 year old son. All they kept on about was lack of motivation, laziness and drinking energy drinks. They just don’t get it and wouldn’t prescribe medication for him saying that he needed to take responsibility for himself, I thought this was just happening to us, I’m so sorry to hear that it was your experience too 😔

  4. I could not have gone through that, I would have had a panic attack at the first few sentences. I don’t know how you did it. I have pda too. I had to stop reading because I had a meltdown. People can be so cruel. Please let someone in power see this post, I don’t know how anyone can expect people to cope with this sort of treatment. Why is it so often from teachers, doctors, psychologists? They have so much power, maybe they do not see they have the power? No one should be treated like this, but autistic people, or me anyway, find the social reasons behind the psychologists behaviour so confusing, terrifying, awful. I would have felt afraid for my life, it’s like being in a cage with a lion.
