Campaign: To challenge misconceptions of Asperger’s syndrome

I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 13.

 

At first, I struggled to accept it. I’d see other people who were autistic and thought the doctor had somehow got it wrong with me.

 

But I slowly realised that everybody with Asperger’s was not the same.

 

Living with Asperger’s can have its challenges, but it’s part of who I am and doesn’t make me any less than anyone else.

 

I’m working with Fixers to challenge misconceptions of the condition and show others who have it that they shouldn’t feel ashamed.

I would like to thank Laura Brooks for helping me with this Fix.
