It took me quite a while for me to personally get to that point. As a kid I was given a dx of dyslexia but that never quite fit, but I accepted it and it was diagnosed using almost the identical type of testing that was recently used. So it is the opinion of the mental help professionals involved that I never had dyselxia.

I had to be very persistent to get this dx. For me it gives me context and the cbt is a very much helping me understand some social or societal things I have difficulty with in addition to being clueless.
