My name is Jason Jackson and I’m the author of My Life Inspiring Journal. The book took about three months to put together with help from Daniel Akpojiyovwi of danieldesignhub.com in Nigeria (formerly danielbookdesign.com) and Pamela Greer in Idaho. I am grateful to them for their help in making this book a reality. Also, I am autistic and bipolar though not necessarily all at the same time.
I’ve learned over time to emphasize my abilities over my limitations. My book describes the struggle I have to not be defined by my disabilities, but to find solace that everyone struggles with something. Did you know that one in 44 kids has autism, that’s 2.3% of the population and that twenty million people are parents to an autistic child. On the other hand 4.4% struggle with bipolar.
Teasing out the differences and similarities can be challenging. In my book I use Ramsey as a fictitious character modeled after myself and conversations with my Dad when he was alive. I try to wrap the two disabilities into one thread with a “real, and touching account” of how I felt as a burgeoning adult. I am in the process of writing a second book more focused on the mental “inner thoughts” that other people might have. I hope you will be on the lookout for this book also.
Unlocking Resilience! Jason highlights the prevalence of autism. Inspired by conversations with his late father, he intertwines both disabilities into a heartfelt narrative that captures his journey into adulthood.

Love this line in his book, ‘Who knows if this is all bullshit I’m writing, but it’s my personal bullshit that belongs only to me. I think the world of people don’t really hear what they’re thinking in their heads because they have all the chatter and consensus of voices outside of theirs battling for space.’
Though there are grammatical and spelling errors, the message overall with these little gems of realization and understanding through his filter, is ultimately hope: it’s for understanding, for belonging, for his search for his meaning of existence. It’s a self journey of realization that truly is life inspiring, at least for me reading it.
Bravo, Jason. I hope you write more memoirs about your experiences so we as readers can appreciate these different viewpoints and new filters of understanding and interpretation we take for granted.
This is a deeply personal and inspirational account that sheds light on the experiences of individuals facing autism and mental health challenges. This journal offers a unique glimpse into the author’s journey, providing valuable insights and guidance for those on similar paths.

Well done.
