Should I see my doctor?
02.09.2017 by Ambre

I'm only 17 and I decided to take this quiz because I always just feel empty. I don't hug people or anything like that because I don't understand why anyone would want to. People around me I think get quite frustrated with me because I find it difficult to understand how they are feeling. I have anxiety which could possibly be influencing this but I don't know? Should I see my doctor?

In my opinion, yes, as they may be able to help with counselling etc. I'm not a fan of medication, but you may want to consider your options. You might also want to try an Autism Quotient test, to rule that out (or in.)
