Neurodiversity and lucid dreaming

Wondering how many of you are neurodiverse. I have autism it is a gift! I’m not sure if it makes lucid dreaming easier or not. But erasing stigma is important I know this isn’t that related to lucid dreaming but wondering what the percentage of lucid dreamers aren’t neurotypical!

I was diagnosed with aspergers a few years back. I love who I am though, nothing but positive vibes :slight_smile:
Sometimes difficult to communicate face to face but that’s one of the reasons dreams are so special to me, can talk with DC and do amazing things together!

How did the diagnosis process work?

I’m not sure if it was stated as an official diagnosis, I would most likely have to see a specialist but I went to my primary doctor and my mother mentioned I might have a form of ASD so the doctor went through social observations and communicative behaviors, basically talking to me for a while and asking me questions and after the appointment ended she wrote down on file, that in her medical opinion I showed similar traits to others with aspergers and that I might indeed have it also.

Would your primary doctor ever consider referring you to a behavioral specialist for a more in-depth evaluation?

Yeah I just got done mentioning it to my mother and she said afterwards I was sent to a behavioral specialist and they went through an evaluation and diagnosed me with it. (Which falls under autism spectrum (ASD), there’s no separate diagnosis anymore I learned). I had no further doctors appointments regarding it after that last one though.

i did go to a doctor who said i had autism, but he wouldn’t sign his name to officially diagnose me? i definitely show many traits of autism but i think i got skipped over growing up.
