hi, I’ve been referred to for an ASD assessment which will take 11 months. I’ve tried to enter education and do my a levels twice and an access course 4 times. I didn’t go a lot of the time due to anxiety and I suffered burnouts that led to hospitalisation on two occasions. I just want to get somewhere in life, I enjoy learning about the human body and with my conditions (ADHD/GAD/history of self harm and suicide attempts) and a strong likelihood of ASD, i know that it will really impact my mental health if I can’t pursue what I enjoy. I spoke to the college today (the college counsellor, too nervous to speak to the tutor) and they said I would need an ok from my psychiatrist and support put in place. It makes me feel so obsolete and worthless. Just wondering what sort of support would be available? Or if anyone has any suggestions? Don’t think I could afford the OU but it will be an idea. Thank you
