23. Yeah, it sucks. :(
Even with insurance, we had my husband tested for AS last year, and we hadn't yet met our yearly $1000 for out-of-network psych stuff, and there are no in-network people in our area who do AS diagnosis for adults. So we ate that bill. Ouch.

You're so right that knowledge is power, especially in the case of caring for one's body and mind, or that of one's child.
