how the fuck are anti self dx people ableist? like please explain to me how i'm ableist when i am DISABLED AND HAVE INSURANCE SPECIFICALLY FOR MY DISABILITY. is it because people who want validity for their possible disorders can't go get diagnosed due to financial means or something? your argument is flawed and quite frankly just insensitive and i can't. like i think you're a really sweet person but i worked my ass off for my diagnosis don't you ever tell me otherwise
Because a lot of anti self-dxers are ableist OUTSIDE of being anti self-dx. It often comes hand in hand with being anti-SJW and they throw slurs around constantly. Also, I didn’t say all, I said most. A lot of anti self-dx arguments form from a misunderstanding of why people self-dx and a refusal to listen to anyone else.
There’s many more reasons than that- finance, abusive circumstances, delusions surrounding doctors, and a lot more. I don’t see how saying that some people simply don’t have access to a doctor is insensitive?
Saying that, you can be disabled and be ableist. When I was younger, I was mentally ill AND I was ableist, they don’t cancel each other out.
And I didn’t tell you otherwise. You seem to imply you follow me so you should know that I suggest people get a diagnosis if they can, and I congratulate people for getting a dx because it is hard. I’m actually kinda hurt you’d imply I wouldn’t say you worked for it, when I very often make the point that getting a dx can be hard but worth it.
