Does anyone have an adult child with this syndrome? My daughter was just diagnosed last year!!
My 34 yr old daughter was not diagnosed with aspbergers until last year!!!! We were a military family and while they told us she had a learning disability the syndrome was never mentioned. Even after my retirement from the army and a move to Austin we had her enrolled in MHMR, a local pcychologist for therapy, etc. again nothing about autism. We lost years and years of the proper treatment, and it has been extremely distressing.
I now leave in a smaller town in the Hill Country of Texas and have found a local program she is enrolled in that is finally reaching out and giving her the treatment is has needed for so long, emotionall, physcially and mentally. They even found her a job at the local theatre as an usher that she dearly loves and her employers and other workers love her as much. That as been so lovely to see her happy and busy. I recently sent her to visit with her father, I had to have a break for a few weeks. Its not easy dealing with an adult 34 year old woman
who is emotionally about 12 years old. She frequently is emotional and hormonal. I realize that is all quite normal for this, but it does get exhausting and to never get the hugs, smiles and kisses I always received with her older brothers and sisters sometimes is heartbreaking. She'll be home soon and is anxious to get back to work. I was wondering if anyone else has suggestions as to diet, medications, anything that might be beneficial to her future happiness.
