My gorgeous son Sean since he was a toddler would not eat or socialise with kids,he was diagnosed with aspberger syndrome,had a party for his 4 th birthday he hid under the table until every child left,they all had a great time from then on Sean saw dr after dr he would only eat chocolate,so skinny as a child,now he ears the same diet in rotation of the week, he is the most loving caring person,but won't go out,he will only come for a walk with me on the very odd occasion, he is now 25 yr all he does is study putting himself through university at home for the past 3 years,he has worked but it was a job where he worked on his own and only communicated when he had to.he is super smart but his speech is now slurred as he wont talk much,I go in and out of his room chat about anything about 5 times a day just to communicate he cooks his own meals and won't take any money off us does everything himself.
I am worried that his muscles are wasting away as he sits and sits for hours and never goes out the house for a month at a time,anyone out there have the same problem,I feel when kids get over a certain age there is no help as they are adults at this age,but very sad to watch your child waste away.😒😒

Thank you so much for your kind words and great link to aspberger syndrome,I forwarded the social skill one to Sean hopefully he will check it out.unfortunately Sean thinks he doesn't need help as in his world he is normal.
But hopefully one day we will get there enjoy your day Helen

I hear your heart. I'm a mother of two kids near your sons age. It's hard to see our kids going through difficult things and we wish we could help them. He has so much going for him. First he has a great mom. He's loving, considerate, hard working, responsible and gorgeous; and he cooks! He sounds like an awesome guy. Here's a link that has some great info.. You may already have this info but just in case there may be something that is helpful I thought I would share. Does he like dogs? A dog can add a lot to a persons life and they need to be walked. Your son might become more interested in exercising if he has a dog to walk. Maybe a dog from a shelter. They can help each other out. I know that getting a dog is a big responsibility but maybe it's an idea that your able to at least consider. http://bit.ly/1jV7SRw
