The Other Side: Living With Asperger Syndrome

Recommended Posts

Willow

Just wanted to tell you all that, after a very long, hard road, my book is finally complete!

 

It's release date is the 2nd April (World Autism Awareness Day).

 

It's around 70,000 words long (376 pages).

 

The foreword is written by the lovely Liane Holliday Willey, EdD  and I am very honored that she was able to do this for me! 

 

Also, to run alongside the book, there will be an interactive timeline, which will consist of various videos, photographs, letters and artwork that fit with each chapter. This will be available within the next week.

I wrote this book to try and help other people with Asperger Syndrome, and their families. I hope that my experiences and the way I have dealt with situations will guide others so that they can further understand themselves, feel less alone, and hopefully go about getting the help they need – whether that’s a diagnosis, or just ways to cope as a person on the spectrum, in a world full of people who see things differently.

 

I talk about my childhood and how that fits into place and makes sense to me now that I am diagnosed. I also speak about my struggles through school and my teenage years, and how this was the most difficult time in my life, but was also when I found out I was on the spectrum. I then go on to talk about my partner and my new life with him; my various projects on raising awareness of the Autistic Spectrum and how I have learnt to cope with being an Aspie living in a normal world.

 

“WillowHope, like many people on the autism spectrum, is a visual thinker.  She can peek back to her earliest memories and bring them to life with detail and elaboration as fresh and vivid as a sharply taken photograph.  WillowHope’s story is like her name, filled with hope.  She expresses her memories with articulate thoughts that bring the reader into the world of Asperger syndrome and autism.” – from the foreword by Liane Holliday Willey
