So, even though I’ve already been diagnosed autistic, it turns out I also have a LOT of the telltale traits of covert narcissism.


re: mh- 

I mean, yeah, one can definitely seem like the other. Maybe there is some overlap of symptoms. Maybe I’m misdiagnosing myself. I really don’t know.

It really changes how people see you, though. Autistic? You’re a poor, pitiful creature. Narcissistic? Well, then you’re just an asshole.

re: mh- 

I know I’ve said this a million times before, but I don’t like to admit that I have mental problems, because it has usually led to people questioning my judgement or my honesty and taking away some of my autonomy.
