We have finally come to the acknowledge that our almost 3 year old son is autistic. The fact that my son can't socialize the way I wish he could, doesn't hurt as much as the fact that my husband wants little to do with him. It's marriage ending. I love my husband and I always wanted to be in a long lasting marriage, I'm from a nuclear family, I wanted our son to have this one solid piece of foundation. The struggle today is my husbands remark that when our son, Marek, said goodnight repeatedly, my husband didn't respond. I forced him to tell Marek goodnight.
I said "our son is autistic"
he said "I know"
I replied "you make it sound like a hindrance"
he stated "it is...I want a life too".
And I get it... But I really don't.
