I sympathize with your frustration. You are eligible for disability services at your college, BUT you do need to be retested / evaluated. You say your diagnosis was in grade school. New testing will give you an idea of your current strengths and weaknesses. Nothing you discover now will be any worse than the suffering you have been through struggling along without services. Do try to get free testing from the college. Just explore the options for testing - who, where, how long will it take, etc. Take care and best wishes.

Hope you have gotten diagnosed. And remember, you are still young. If you need to regroup for a year, do that, go back. Good luck
