My husband died unexpectantly a week ago and I'm really worried about both our boys, but especially our 11 year old with Asperger's. He's holding everything in and trying to be strong. I know he loves his dad very, very much and it has to hurt as much as it hurts the rest of our family. We'll be seeing a therapist as soon as I can make an appointment. I have a great friend who's got connections and she's already given me a couple of names. He keeps asking if I'm mad that he hasn't cried yet. I keep saying that he is just like his dad and anything he's feeling or doing is probably just what he would have done (his dad had Asperger's too).
