You Have Nothing To Prove

Danielle had always lived a joyful, carefree life, manifesting her dreams until one day, her biggest dream came true and her beautiful son was born. She loved every precious moment of being a mum until the day her son started at nursery.
Immediately, everything in their world changed as the school noticed that her son was not responding in the same way that the other children did. This was the first step on a long, often painful, journey to discover that her beloved son had a diagnosis of Autism.
The story describes both the harrowing and the celebratory journey of how it impacted on their lives. What did that mean for Danielle? She speaks from the heart of her son being “different”, how she felt throughout the battle of fighting for justice and how she coped with the whole experience from seeing her son go from a mainstream school to a specialist school.
An inspirational story of unconditional love and self-reflection, between mother and son.


You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass

Anton Chekhov
