I’ve been trying to stay positive in a world that intentionally finds ways to PUSH every single one of my buttons… once again, another road block. Got an email today stating that I am NOT eligible for Adult Neurodevelopmental Services for Autism Assessment “due to eligibility criteria”…
I emailed back and asked for what that really meant, here’s what I read:
“All services at CAMH are covered by OHIP for those that have an Ontario health card.
You are not eligible for a psychiatric consult at ANS at this time, because you do not have confirmed diagnosis of autism, this is what you are referred for. If autism is confirmed you can be seen for time limited psychiatric follow up if needed.
But until autism diagnosed ANS cannot provide psychiatric consult. Which is why we discussed the option of being seen at another clinic a CAMH in the meantime.”
Uggghhh just more of the same bullsh*t, I already HAVE a bloody Ontario health card! I’m so emotionally and mentally drained… it’s like no matter how hard I try there is still MORE to overcome. More and MORE unnecessary sh*t. More and more excuses for Neurotypical people to NOT do their f*cking job.
I understand now, why many Autists including myself just give up. I understand why many Autists, which includes myself, keep to themselves. Most Neurotypicals just don’t want to deal with truth. It’s too difficult for them to comprehend so they’re natural tendency is to avoid. It’s beyond heartbreaking and soul-crushing. I suppose there is nothing I can do but keep moving forward for this new “option” while continue running my business… it’s all I have left to look forward to.
