the horrible thing about this (and maybe this isn't helpful) is that "recovering" from abusive families doesn't really make anything "better" or "happy". It's more about being at peace with yourself and your future. It's about breaking the cycle of pain and emotional violence so that your kids under...

My husband has been trying to shake himself of his father for decades. His dad left him when he was 2 1/2 to start another family with a teenager. They left the state and Husband didn't meet him again until he was 14. By then, he was facing running away from home because of trouble with his mom (she...

Pop is very attached to both of us and probably more emotionally attached to Husband. He's only 3 miles away now and I'm sure he'll visit even on his work days.

The meeting was, well, confrontational. I think it went alright, considering. I got tough with some of the important things and they got away with some other things. I was going to tell the teacher but the end of the meeting crumbled apart with everyone leaving and barely saying goodbye. It was weir...

Wish me luck. What a week. Preparing for the IEP, preparing for my husband to move out, school functions, trying to exercise. Good lord, too much! I guess tomorrow we're going to tell Pop that Dad is moving out. He has no idea. I've been dropping hints about changes, that I'm going to look for work ...

You have to question a doctor's perspective of just what autism is, when they say that all those other diagnoses are "less limiting" than the singular dx of autism.

I don't want to alarm you or accuse anyone of anything sordid. But his lashing out at school may be a sign that they are not so "great". My son did that kind of thing at school because they were provoking him. An evaluation team noted that his aide corrected him when he was merely behaving like the ...

My son fits the mold here too. Social engagement is another one of those stereotypes that "experts" interpret differently than we (the families) do. My son's "obsessions" include social interaction. So, once he learned how to talk, he appears to be very engaging. But he's domineering the conversatio...

thanks, we've talked a lot and I went to my therapist today. I'm feeling better in that weird, hopeless way. It's a wake up call, for sure. He's burnt out on things that I've been burying for a long time too. It's just that was attached to this belief that what we had the best option. I'm certainly ...

I do it to an extent and it's one of those factors (just one) that my husband is burnt out on me. I feel like I'm including him in on what I'm doing, like dialogue but it comes across more like a soliloquy and like I'm trying to force him to appreciate whatever nonsense I'm saying. My son does it ev...

thanks so much. I felt so proud of myself backing out of the autism special interest. My husband didn't like the constant talk. But I feel like I'm just plunging into a whole new issue. We've been stuck in the mediocre position with the school for a while. Pop is going to the special ed room for bre...

thanks all. I'm just reeling. I'm ashamed, sad, angry and hopeful all at the same time. I want to beg for him back and kick him in the arse. I want a cosmetic makeover and look like a slob. So many conflicting things at once. I feel like the closer we got to solving our problems, making things right...

I've been not posting here as much. I"ve gotten obsessed with exercise in a response to dealing with long term depression. I had been in therapy for a 1 1/2 years and while that helped, I needed something else. I was really out of shape and while I did have cycles of "highs", it was mostly lows with...
