My Friend Dyslexia

MY JOURNEY FROM self-loathing to self-acceptance

Meet Anne. Author. Blogger. Professional Life Coach. Outwardly, a regular human being. 

Inwardly: now that's a different story. 


In my memoir, "My Friend Dyslexia,"  I give the reader an up-close and personal view of what it looks like to deal with one of many invisible difficulties that impact so many Americans today: dyslexia.   I shed light on the depression and anxiety that often is paired with learning disabilities such as dyslexia and offers a fresh and personal perspective of how we can find peace, acceptance of our weaknesses, and even success despite our culture's negative social stigmas, labels, and seemingly unattainable expectations.


"This book is for the growing individual who is looking for a place to start their journey towards self-acceptance and learning.  The author invites the reader to look deep within themselves by giving her autobiographical account of her experience with a common, often demonized learning difference: Dyslexia.  She also offers practical advice that spans beyond the topic and into everyday life.  A must-read for those with an inquisitive, open mind."

- Charles Davis, Enterprise Account Director 

"This book dives into the loneliness of neurodiversity and finding the path to understanding and accepting yourself for how your differences give you strength. The author's focus and experience is around dyslexia, but I think many neurodiverse people would find value in reading this."

- Susan Chan, Senior Program Coordinator

"In her memoir, where she unpacks her experiences of living with dyslexia, Anne takes the readers' hands and guides them through various personal and educational journeys, using gentle, yet cogent words to draw students, teachers, and professionals alike into her introspective world. Anne’s resilience shines through her frank and uplifting accounts as she invites readers to explore with her the difficult questions that challenge one’s own perceptions and assumptions of themselves, and offers feasible suggestions to help resolve some of these tensions.”

- Frances Ragni, Educator and Researcher, PhD in Education (University of Cambridge)
