Jute is this just natural or because of one of my conditions or their attributes?

I rarely get ill like once or twice a year but when I do I can’t do anything, my senses are completely haywire. There can’t be any noise, movement or sounds. If there are then mild seizure will come over me.

Though then again everything I do is altered by neurological conditions.

I imagine that it's an individual response that's pretty unique to you. As you say it my be in part due to neurological conditions. Hyper sensitivity to external stimuli that leads to mild seizures is certainly unusual, have you mentioned any of this to a doctor?

Avoided all doctors for many years (accept therapists).
I don’t like them, I get anxious arround them and I can’t describe what I’m going through.

I think it’s like a siezure kind of thing. My brain hurts then I lose pretty much all limb power and drop to the floor for about 30 seconds.

If the cause is physical only a doctor can treat it. If the cause is mental then perhaps a therapist may be able to offer some help, if you tell them about it.

I don’t really know what cause it
But I want to avoid doctors at all costs, I saw a therapist for a bit.
The last time I went to the doctors was for my final neurological evaluation and they did loads of wierd mind tests. They quiz you and make wierd faces that I don’t understand.

Probably 99% of people don't like going to see a doctor or a dentist but when you need to do so then you just have to put up with it, because the alternative, of leaving something untreated, can be far more serious.

I would but I don’t want anymore career damaging diagnosis’s because I probably have a few.
That’s why I haven’t had my anxiety put on the NHS system, only ASD is on it.

I'd sooner have a career damaging diagnosis that leave something untreated, which might prove to be potentially serious. With health issues, the sooner they are identified, the sooner they can be treated and the more successful that treatment is likely to be. Leave things too late and they can reach a stage were they're beyond treatment.

I would, but on my CV that met police will have to look at there not going to be any to see all the things wrong with me, I have a diagnosis from a therapist for anxiety but I don’t want it on NHS records as I don’t want it handicapping my future

You need to check out exactly what the rules are about declaring diagnoses. In most cases you don't have to declare a diagnosis, if you choose not to do so. People cannot access your medical records unless you grant them permission or they obtain a court order.

In a job like that you will have to though and I don’t want people to judge my ability on a label given to me

You're making an assumption that 'you'll have to.' Have you actually checked? The equality laws prevent people and organizations from discriminating against someone on the grounds of autism.

There's nothing stopping people with autism from joining the UK police force....

I know that but the section I want to go into may be different as I want to be SCO19 or CTSFO who carry weapons as the stuff they deal with is danger.
Who also carry weapons?
The army, you cannot join the army with autism or they do discriminate.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
These pages should deliver additional information about Alexithymia and offer information for affected persons, relatives and people generally interested in this personality trait.
