Meet Vicky #30 – 90 Real People. Real Lives. #FASD

We are doing this Vicky and TODAY is your day — You are runner number 30 – Thank you so much for sharing your story and stepping out to run with Mac!

MEET VICKY – I grew up in the foster care system and no one talked about FASD openly so I did not get much intervention until I was an adult. That is very sad as so often I did not know what was going on and became angry. As I grew older I found people who wanted to learn about my challenges and help me. I’m so grateful for that.

MY STORY – I am not sure when I was diagnosed but I was in foster care from when I was 18 months old till I was 18. Back then FASD wasn’t something anyone openly spoke about so I didn’t get much intervention. I grew up being a very angry person cause I could understand what was going on most of the time. As I grew older I found people who wanted to learn and help me. These good people did a lot of work with me and I’m so grateful for that.

STRENGTHS – I am good at sports. I am also kind and careful to others

STRUGGLES – I have a big difficulty handling change. I have to know what is going on and if I don’t I spin out of control and get angry. My anger can be a real struggle and it gets in my way some days.

MY WISH – For there to be more help and support for people FASD.
