Kinda reminds me of my parents. I had to wait for them to die before I could go get diagnosed with Aspergers. They didn’t believe in psychiatry.
You have no idea how much I empathize with you. My parents took me to a clinic when I was 5 since I didn’t cry very often, and I received a diagnosis for Asperger’s.
Unfortunately, that’s all. I didn’t get any treatment for it. A Psychiatrist was out of the question, because they believed my problems could be solved with “normal” means. They wanted me to “be like everyone else”.
As soon as I don’t have to rely on them anymore, I’m visiting a Psychiatrist for my Anxiety. Anti-medication is not OK. I could’ve potentially solved so many problems I had when I was younger.
