My daughter is 31. She has seen multiple therapists but noone diagnosed her.

A friend brought this up 5 years ago due to her grandsons diagnosis. Everything makes sense now from this perspective. I have tried to get my daughter to see that she could get help with her kley issues with some of the support groups. She is presently angry with me and will not communicate with me. I think her father has this syndrome also-we are divorced. Reading the posts, I identify with the anger issues, the failures at good jobs due to her arrogance, the inability to care for herself: financially, socially, and healthwise. She is extrememly bright but does not do well. She doesn't answer phones or open the mail. The mail makes her too nervous. She is very callous with people. I guess I just need to read the posts from everyone and sympathize. My daughter is currently seeing a therapist who is younger than she- in grad school ( a reduced rate) and this person just thinks my daughter "needs to grow up". No recognition of Aspergers diagnosis. There were many incidents in her schools growing up but she was so bright no one went any further. Her first grade teacher mentioned something once about socially behind and the principal just glossed over it ansd said "she's fine." Her generation missed the diagnosis- before it was recognized. My daughter thinks I am insulting her.

Thanks- that's basically where I am now. She is in a serious relationship and sooner or later, her partner will notice the issues and hopefully help her move forward.

let her know you're there for her, but she's got to be the one to make the decision about what to do, or even whether she wants to do anything about it.

You've let her know that you think she needs help, she's let you know that your statement upset her. She's a big girl now, and she's the only one who can make that decision. If she's married, perhaps her spouse can help her decide.
