It’s that time of year again, a time for me to reflect. I am again deep in thought and I turn to my autism diagnosis, which I found out about in January, although it seems a lot longer and my accomplishments this year with the book. The book has catapulted me into a different thinking and I’m okay with it, because it needed to happen.
Although I’ve been working on the book for three and a half years, I started putting it together in May of this year. It is an open and honest account of my experiences and life. It explains my journey through my experiences and brings understanding into the equation for the first time.
Although my website touches on my personal experiences, my blogs don’t touch on my ‘life story’ in the way the book does. The book has allowed me to draw on my thoughts, around a disability I didn’t know I had.
Realistically, I could never understand my life in any great detail without writing the book. It wasn’t a choice I was given. I needed to know about my disability.
