Blog - Grace Under Pressure


Grace was a sunny and affectionate baby who has grown into a loving and beautiful girl. However, I have watched her become anxious and upset as she gets older and conscious of her differences. I have spent years seeking advice and a formal diagnosis. I have cajoled healthcare professionals, psychiatric experts and teachers to get her the support she so badly needs and it has always felt like an uphill battle. I have been encouraged by kindness but more often have come across shocking and unacceptable levels of ignorance.

Get to know me:

Mother, marathoner, author, campaigner: I started this blog with my elder daughter when she was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and both of us were struggling to find help and support. I wanted to give her a voice, to show with what dignity and courage she went forward every day, and with what humour and fortitude she overcame challenges. I took up long-distance running to raise money and awareness of her condition and took inspiration from her courage as I trained. We are still writing and I am still running.
