I’m Arianne. I’m an autistic person. So many stigmas exist today surrounding autism, and with awareness at an all time high, it’s important for our voices to be heard.
I write as both a patient with a disability and an insurance collector for a provider. Because I can see both sides of the coin, I want to educate patients about what benefits they aren’t taking advantage of. I want to share my work with others, in the hopes they benefit from what I’ve learned with my alternate perspective, and work with providers for patient advocacy.
I want to get better at expressing myself and connecting with others. It’s important to realize that for me, thinking is easy, but feeling and expressing… it’s work. I want people to understand this about me before they work with me.
Arianneswork is my work, and my work is an expression of who I am.
