A couple of people (My grandma and myy 13 year old sister)have shared with me that they believe I may be on the spectrum...They mever mean it as a problem, but...but.. What am I supposed to do with this info? I mean it would "explain" many aspects of my life...but I feel like: A. If I am, do I need to know, since I seem to not "suffer" about it, B. If I am not, do I need to know? Since it's not like I would be happy about not being autistic...it would be just an info.

Now.. existential questions aside... How does one go about it anyway? Do I go to my GP and say: People think I'm autistic, I think there could be a chance, test me!?

Or is there a better way to get diagnosed or not-diagnosed?
