Having Turners Syndrom
My name is Kim, I am 25 years old with Turners living in South Australia. I have been diagnosed when a small child. I have achieved a degree in social work, working in the field of aged care and disabilities. My concerns are that in having a syndrome such as Turners it can be stereotyped ie. Turners girls have intellectual impairments, physically based abnormalities. Even doctors can stereotype you as not appearing to `look like you have Turners`, what do we look like exactly. My message is to parents and particularly girls and young adults with Turners consider yourself normal, receive appropriate medical advice but don`t label yourself as Turners as it will only limit your self perception.
