best thing i've ever heard about labels: "as any cat will tell you, putting yourself in a box is completely different from someone else putting you in a box"

I used this to explain to my doc a long time ago part of why i wanted an autism dx.

I also like that labels are made to describe what's in the box - if what's in the box changes, the label can change. They don't need to be permanent.
