Another girl on the Spectrum. Who happens to be a Medical Doctor
I am Angela, a 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’m glad to finally understand what has been causing me so much complaints 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.
