People with Turner Syndrome are complicated and contain many layers and multiple identities, just like any other group of people. While we do have social media and the Turner Syndrome Society's annual conferences to keep in touch and find people who have gone through similar experiences, there is definitely something to be said about being able to see a reflection of yourself in popular media.
Having TS isn't easy. It involves loneliness, isolation and the feeling that nobody on the outside will ever get it. But it also means meeting wonderful people at conferences and chapter meetings who get that finding people in the circle is rare. I may hate the things that come with having Turner Syndrome, but I can never hate the syndrome itself.
