Hi my name is lisa. I have been married for almost 20 years. I am 49. I have a 17 year old girl. A 15 year old boy. He had been diagnosed with Asberger's. Though a lot of hard work on his part .. Mine and cooperation and understanding of the school (a IEP in place that had made it possible for my son to
thrive scholastically, socially, occasionally he go off the track.I also have a 12 year old son. When my son was diagnosed my husband's behaviors, emotional reactions started to make more sense. I have confronted my husband with my own diagnosis of himself. This helps in some of the disagreements with about the children, running off the house. However, his options, lack of interpreting what is said correctly has mad the rest of our family ... Me and the kids.. Stressed, depressed, never know what will set off his fuse. How he will interpret a situation. Abrupt behavior or inappropriate behavior is leaving every one unhappy. The family is dysfunctional. I love him but I'm tired. The kids ask why I'm still married to him. I guess I keep hoping things will get better. I am the only thing that us keeping this family going. I never know which way my husband will react or behave. I am the only protection my kids have to stop inappropriate or over the top reactions he has. He us a great guy. Doesn't do things maliciously. I'm going nuts... Not having the energy or incentive to want to see friends.. I am on Zoloff and see a therapist otherwise I would then totally not been there for my family.
Anyone have advise.. Or just want to wallow with me.
