Just four years ago, Philip Wylie didn’t even know about autism or Aspergers. He was living overseas in Thailand.
Through a series of circumstances, he learned about and was diagnosed with Aspergers.
While others have had better experiences, he unfortunately went through some deep depression after discovering his diagnosis.
Four years later, Philip has learned deep self-acceptance. He’s spearheaded various valuable projects, written books, and is spreading a positive awareness of autism.
I recently read an article by M. Kelter from Invisible Strings blog about the high number of email inquiries he gets from autistics and Aspergians who are depressed and have suicidal thoughts. They are so discouraged.
But there is a movement of great Aspergian and autistic writers who are bringing hope.
Philip is one of those writers.
