From childhood, Laura James knew she was different, struggling to cope in a world that often made no sense. It wasn't until she reached her forties that she found out why. She learned, quite by chance, that she was one of the 700,000 people in the UK with autism. Married with four children, and a successful journalist, Laura charts a year in her life, from diagnosis to acceptance. She examines not only her own autism, but also how it has impacted on those around her. How it has shaped her career, her approach to motherhood, and her attempts to find a way to make relationships work. She also looks at the unique benefits neurodiversity can bring, and with disarming humour reveals how she finally found a way to just be.
