Sample text

As a young adult, I could be easily led in social groups. I got in with the wrong group of people at college and one evening they bought me many alcoholic drinks. They could not understand why I never seemed to change my emotional state when I was drinking – I never seemed to behave drunk. I eventually lost consciousness and I was taken to hospital in an ambulance in a coma with alcohol poisoning. The doctor seemed convinced that I was trying to commit suicide, which certainly was not the case.

On one occasion when I was refusing to open my hands the staff denied me food; the others gathered around me and told me that they would get food to me and that they would refuse to see me starve. I was also told that they could not figure out what was wrong with me. I think they were putting me somewhere between OCD and schizophrenia but they could not figure me out at all. However this did not stop them wanting to give me ECT when I was 14 and but for my father, who was clever enough to challenge them, God only knows where I would be today.

But he told her I was lazy and said that she should give me more work to do. I struggled on through my junior school. When I was 11, my parents found me a private tutor to teach me to write with the one-to-one tuition; with a good relationship with my tutor I came on more than I ever had done in the past and could write before I went to secondary school in at least a legible fashion.
