180: Quirky or Disabled?

I’ve seen some conversations recently about how being a Highly Sensitive Person can overlap with characteristics of specific disabilities & neurodiversities such as ADHD or Autism. There was some discussion of whether identifying as HSP might prevent or delay seeking a deeper underlying diagnosis and it got me thinking about how other traits such as multi potentiality and giftedness might also interfere with getting diagnosis and treatment.

  • The impact of late or no diagnosis on self esteem.

  • Why we should look deeper if we feel a trait is having a negative impact on our lives.
