Claire spent 30 years trying to 'fit in'. But constantly pretending to be just like everyone else placed an intolerable strain on her mental health. Then she discovered the truth: she was autistic.
Autism is a gift, a blessing, if you (and the rest of society) understand, accept and manage it. But un-diagnosed and un-managed autism, or autism accompanied by mental health disorders, is a curse. You can fall through the net, desperately competing to fit into a world that was not built to accommodate you.
Too Much World is a searingly honest autobiographical account of how Claire survives as an autistic girl: about friendship, mental health and the importance of empathy. It is an open door into one brain with remarkable differences. Differences that have been masked and hidden away... until now.
