How do I bring things up to my counselor. All 3 of my brothers have ADHD and I have many of the same traits and symptoms and think I have it. Plus one of my brother’s has Aspergers and I have many traits that align with this as well. I don’t know how to bring these up to my counselor about getting help getting either diagnosed or considered for an evaluation. I feel like suggesting I have either will come off weird. Help.
