Growing up in a world dominated by fear and loneliness, Fiona knew that something was wrong, but assumed it was all her fault. A breakdown at the age of eighteen brought her to the brink of despair, but proved to be the turning point. A combination of cognitive behaviour therapy, friendships at university and gaining a personal faith gave her new hope. Subsequent failure to meet the right man led to plunging self-esteem and a return to loneliness, but she eventually found fulfilment through adopting two baby boys with Down's Syndrome. When her sons were teenagers, she was finally diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome at the age of 48, enabling her to make sense of her life and gain the self acceptance that had eluded her for so long. This is a true story. Only the names have been changed.
