Sorry if I am being dense.

Even if I'm not currently suffering an 'episode', I often feel uncomfortable answering questions on forms that ask about mental health in the negative (saying that I don't have problems) because I know that I am prone to problems. If I was confident that they'd never come back, that'd be fine, but as I know that it depends on my situation at the time, I don't like the idea of completely cutting myself off from any potential future help!

My father was an alcoholic most of my life - ask my mother and she'll deny it to this day.
I wonder often how I didn't see what was really going on with DS (and DH).
Back then, DS had very classic signs of being on the autistic spectrum. I think part of me knew, which is why I kept pushing for a neuro eval - which ended up being a big disappointment.
So JNSQ may only be seeing what he wants to see. We do it all the time.
