Re: New, need support
OK, I see that their are 2 people in your life that have Asperger's. Your brother , and a female friend. it looks to me like this is way too overwhelming for you to have to deal with. I also see that you feel a sense of responsibilty towards your brother. If your brother is under 22 he is eligible for educational services . If he is older then 22 their might be a rehab center in your county where they teach adults how to work , or they are called workability programs. You can call your local refional center for assistance. They can tell you more services and programs that your brother would be eligible for. I just read that he does work, good for him. But, during the daytime , does he have anything to do?
As for the female friend, if she is too much stress and your already caring for your brother, then perhaps limit the amount of time you spend with her. Even if she does not agree. You have to take care of yourself first.
Their are residential programs, halfway houses, semi independant adult living programs for the developmentally disabled. I am just trying to help you se that you do have options .
