Description - Born on the Wrong Planet by Erika Hammerschmidt
When you don't feel comfortable in your own skin, life can seem strange and foreign - you try to fit in, but with every new day comes a new challenge. Diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, author Erika Hammerschmidt can relate. "Born on the Wrong Planet" is the story of her childhood and young adulthood coping with the challenges of Asperger Syndrome. The book started as a collection of stories, poems, and essays that Erika penned during high school. After high school as she studied abroad in Germany, Erika compiled them and created the first version of "Born on the Wrong Planet". In the current revised and expanded edition of "Born on the Wrong Planet", Erika takes us into the confusing and often tumultuous years of dating, and finally marriage to John, a young man who is also on the spectrum whom she met in college. Throughout, Erika's unique language skills and her fresh perspective on the world combine into a both delightful and enlightening read. In Erika's own words she shares that, 'even if you feel like an alien, that doesn't negate your potential as a successful human being or your ability to realize your potential'.
