Am I autistic?

Now that I know my son and understand his autism a little more, I am starting to see his behavior in myself.

For example, this morning my dh suggested giving our son a bath after playing outside. I started  crying and getting really mad because that isn't my son and I's normal routine! I didn't even realize what I was doing until my dh pointed it out to me.

It doesn't really matter and it wouldn't change anything, but I am just curious and was surprised to see all the similarities in our behavior.

I know, I'm also going to ask my psychiatrist, but I was just curious.

 that is a possibility, but as the post said, this is just an example.

 Definitely, lol.

I just thought maybe autism too. My son is also OCD as well as autistic.

 If you were seriously "crying", I would say that you have some serious mental health problems. 

I have no idea if you are autistic. 

Either way, you should probably check yourself in some place.
