My name is Julia. I am 24 years old. I was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome when I was about 12 years old. At the time I didn’t know what it was, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned a lot more about Asperger’s and other disorders on the autism spectrum. I graduated from UC San Diego in March 2012 with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Theater. I also worked in an autism lab at UCSD for about 6 months.
Most psychologists would probably say that I was either misdiagnosed or that I have been cured. I’ll let you decide if either of those are really true and what a cure really means to you.
I hope you enjoy my blog and learn as much from reading it as I have from writing it.
