Hello, I have just joined Circle of Moms and will be very interested in talking to Mums who also have a son or daughter with Aspergers / Social Phobia. Our son is 30 years old and was diagnosed with Aspergers when he was 24. Steven is a lovely chap but he is a loner and only goes out with me and his dad. Steven has regular meltdowns and also self harms. Steven has a vast collection of DVDs and blu rays and he has a special interest for Dr Who and classic Comedies. Steven feels that when he is out people are looking at him thinking he is weird and it breaks our hearts that he feels that way and so alone.
We do not really get any support here in the UK from the NHS. Steven has just finished taking Venlafaxine going on to Citalopram, he also takes Olanzapine, Propranolol and Simvastatin.
It would be nice to hear from other Mums in the same situation. We find it very hard sometimes especially when Steven is having a meltdown.
Thank you and hope some Mums will reply.
Thank you, Debbie
