Review of Eye-locks and Other Fearsome Things: Learning to Love as a Bipolar Aspie

Book Cover of "Eye-locks and Other Fearsome Things: Learning to Love as a Bipolar Aspie"
Buy and read this book! I did.

I greatly enjoyed reading and highly recommend Ellen Stockdale Wolfe’s autobiographical story of love alongside psychological and neurological growth: Eye-locks and Other Fearsome Things: Learning to Love as a Bipolar Aspie. In her memoir, Ms. Stockdale Wolfe writes of her struggle with Asperger’s and Bipolar Disorder with psychotic features. Her autobiography traces her growth in her ability to love deeply and truly, her mental health history, and how she overcame challenges of her unique Aspie brain (Asperger’s is an autism spectrum disorder). She uses that unique brain as well as her sensitive soul to create beauty, whether it be this memoir, a poem, photograph, or painting. To see more of her stunning work, check her out at, her site is appropriately entitled MOONSIDE | TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART.

  1. Reblogged this on MOONSIDE and commented:
    Kitt O’Malley over at so generously reviewed my book about being Bipolar and Aspie and fighting for sanity and love on her blog. Kitt writes about vital topics, ranging from being a Bipolar parent to a relationship with God. She can also be found at @kittomalley on Twitter. A big THANK YOU to Kitt for posting this review.

  2. Sounds like one to read. Thanks for the recommendation Kitt.

  3. I know. I should have mentioned that. Maybe I’ll edit my post.

  4. Wow, Kitt, reading your review makes me want to read this book! I know next-to-nothing about Asperger’s, although my Mom (a speech pathologist with the L.A. Unified School District) worked with many students living with the disorder. I’ll have to download it on my Kindle; I jut found it – it’s a massive steal @ $2.99!!!!!

  5. Thank you. Read the book, or check out Ellen Stockdale Wolfe’s art work. She’s truly gifted.

  6. My pleasure. What I found most interesting in reading your book was knowing how far you have come from the psychotic obsessive thought process you experienced for so many years. Not only has your capacity for and ability to discern true love developed, but your reality testing and thought process has greatly improved.

  7. Dear Kitt – I am touched by your words in the blog. You made me full my both eyes with tears. You do deserve the highest compliments. I was sharing your article with my mother who is a doctor and she was out of words. God Bless you!!

  8. Dear Kitt, A mere thank you does not express my gratitude not only for your reading my book, but posting this review. I know it is was not an easy read– you are so very kind and generous. I see it over and over again. Thank you and glad you are doing better and enjoying time with your family. You certainly deserve it! With much appreciation, Ellen

  9. I will have to check it out.
