🔗 A diagnosis is not an identity.

A diagnosis is not an identity by Jeannie

I have autism, avoidant personality disorder, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder. I am not the sum of my diagnoses. I am Jeannie; a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a human being. I am smart, strong, and self-aware. I refuse to let a medical term dictate my abilities or confine me to a symptom list. These terms, to me, are merely means to find ways of counteracting the shortcomings these medical conditions have imposed on me.

Very well said Jeannie. 💜
