Life at home
I had to make a choice between running away, killing myself or going home.
I went home.
My parents response immediately tells me I made the wrong choice.
Nobody understands or cares what I think or how I feel, and so I just end up disappointing them.
I got the autiplan app.
Are there any others for Prosopagnosia that would help me......?
I am exhausted trying to keep my 13 year old daughter occupied, it's like having a toddler again, she follows me around wanting to "do something" all the time. She has not had a diagnosis but I suspect she is on the spectrum. She has a SEN and only attends tution for an hour a day at a private educational provision. I woner if there is anyone else out there in a similar position to me? Would love to chat x
I am so upset and frustrated and I hate my mum right now and feel very upset. I got caught out lying and now I have nowhere to hide because I have to live in this stupid house and if they weren't so nosy and intrusive I wouldn't have had to lie in the first place if they could keep their noses out. I am so upset and angry because it is their fault I had to lie. I am waiting for a girl to move out of a flat with support but she is taking so long to find somewhere to move to I am feeling very angry towards her too because I JUST WANT TO GET OUT.
My name is Carole - I have a six year old son Leon who is happy bright and very energetic so keeps me on my toes! He has ASD/Aspergers and severe ADHD. I am also awaiting an assessment for ASD. Super busy at the moment as I'm working full-time and studying for a PGCert in Autism at Sheffield Hallam University which I am really enjoying. I don't have any support from family etc (apart from my husband who also works full-time) so I'd love to hear from others in a similar boat - parents of young children with autism or adults trying to get a diagnosis.
How have the Easter Holidays been for everyone? I've hardly seen Tom ... he's either out or sleeping, always brings a friend home to help him eat me out of house and home!! So much for the studying he's meant to be doing, I think he's managed one day.
Hopefully he will get back into Uni mode next week when he goes back.
