I was athletic, strong and a fast reader until an accident took that from me in my mid 20s. I still had so much that I wanted to do, finish college, get married all that stuff. But that took a backseat to my medical needs. Even so I’m not giving up. #DisabilityHasNoAgeRequirement
Symptoms hit me at age 25. I'm 37 now & I'm still tired of being told I'm "too young" to be this ill or have these kinds of pains. It's been a battle to get the medical community to take me seriously & it still goes on, even after various diagnoses.
When I was a youngster, I didn’t know I was disabled. Accepting my disability has been a process. The loneliness of struggling without understanding why is profound, and I do not wish that on any young person. If you’re struggling, pls ask for help
I was diagnosed with ADHD on my 6th birthday. I was later misdiagnosed and then finally diagnosed with autism when I was 17. I did not magically grow out of it 6 months later. In fact, I’m 27 and still have autism and ADHD. They exist in adults too. #DisabilityHasNoAgeRequirement
