Another girl on the Spectrum. Who happens to be a Medical Doctor
I am Angela, a 37 year old woman, living in the Netherlands, who recently got diagnosed with autism. I guess I am the ‘high functioning type’, who got a late diagnosis. I have studied medicine, a bit of law, and am a licensed Medical Doctor.
I am happy to finally understand the complaints, I have been experiencing for the last decade(s). Unfortunately the autism, especially the sensory issues, are seriously interfering with my work and life. As a trained physician, I am continuously looking for strategies, aids, and medicine to be able to function as a ‘normal’ human being. I would like to share my – for lack of a better word – ‘journey’ with everyone on the spectrum.
At the moment I can not reveal my complete identity, since only my close friends and family know about my diagnosis. I am planning to be more open about this, but it will take some time.
