My husband and I agreed to marital counseling about 5 years ago. It is a second arrange for both of us. The counselor told me during a private session that he thought my husband displayed traits of Aspergers. I mentioned this to my husband and he became very angry and will not discuss it. I love my husband very much and he is very thoughtful at times but he is becoming more and more socially awkward. I see the same traits in my now 19 year old Step-son. I think my in-laws and Brothers-in-laws have Aspergers as well. My Sisters-in-law are no consolation because they are very self serving women and if they are impacted they do not discuss it. I try and encourage and facilitate a functional family life including my adult daughter and grandchildren but am exhausted from making all the effort. Since I am no longer working outside the
home, I am isolated and cutoff from a social network. Sometimes I feel I am living in a house of mirrors. Are there any other Moms and Spouses out there in a similar situation that will share information about how they cope. I do not want to leave my husband but it's hard to believe this is my life.
