Hi my name is Leah, I have been married for 17yrs and have 6 boys, I had my two oldest boys diagnosed with aspergers 5 yrs ago but didnt really feel they had it but need funding for my second oldest who has severe learning difficults. I have recently realised and so has my oldest son who is nearly 16 yrs old that he really does have it. I have also thought my husband has had it but had him tested at a university as it was cheaper and they said he was too smart to have it, mmmm aspergers people are smart. Anyway I am just really at my limit. I have struggled in my marriage for 17yrs now as my husband is so black and white and I have felt controlled and like my life has too be so rigid and my oldest son sometime is fabulous and shares his music with me and his great with his little brothers and other times he yells at me will not talk and isolates himself. My husband and my oldest son have not been getting along as my husband discipline is forcing and controlling and my son is now at the age where he isnt doing what dad says and now my husband wants to kick him out of the house and I am feeling torn. so much going on my head is going to explode and so much i am tryign to understand. I dont feel my husband is reasonable or understand and he doesnt listen to my opinion and does it his way. My son has only been at school 50% this year and has been sick in bed for all of term one and now he is home today and had a day of the last week and it seems to be triggered by his dad coming down on him.
