I’m LadyMage and I’m a 22 year old female student with Asperger’s syndrome. I was also diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder Not otherwise specified with Depressive features. I’ve faced more than my fair share of challenges in life but I’m pretty successful. I’ll graduate college in may, I’ve got a part time job, and I have my driver’s license. All that is way more than a lot of ‘aspies’ as we like to call ourselves, have accomplished. If you have any questions and curiosities about what it’s like to be a girl with asperger’s syndrome, ask away.
Asperger’s syndrome, in a nutshell, is a complex neurological disorder. It basically affects how we read social cues and body language. It also affects how we process things and it does lead to sensory issues.
