Smile Hello!

Hi, I'm a 33 yr old woman with Asperger's. My husband also is an Aspie and we have 5 children we are trying to raise. It's far from easy and I really feel I could use some support. I don't really have any friends, and the couple I have I wouldn't talk to about it because that's just me. I do much better socially when behind a screen and a keyboard.
Any other autistic parents out there? I know this is not all that common.

Re: Hello!

Pawsalmighty... I'm not an aspie, but I'm here to talk to anytime. I wouldn't mind at all... I know how it is with family life, needing to vent. I understand aspie's, my sister is law is an aspie and I understand.

Re: Hello!

I am sorry you both have Asperger's. It is not that autistic, I would think. You just do it more quietly and without social intervention/groups. Sometimes people think it is just another type. I think it is like different personality or lifestyle. People have overreacted to this, and I think other "normal" parents have same issues for raising kids and etc. The basic thing is to make sure the kids are raised without being affected by bad elements. I think sometimes such parents actually do better jobs to prevent the kids from being badly influenced. e.g., if you tend to study or read more, it is a plus. The issue is the socialization and/or to blend with the society norm.

Take care,
Nina

Re: Hello!

I'm a parent with Aspergers. We could probably be helpful to each other lol.

I am better behind a computer screen myself.

We have parenting issues like anyone else but we also have our own special needs which affect the parenting experience. When people suggest that you reach out to neighbours or people at your child's school, uhhh, it's not that simple.


Hope to hear from you soon.
