My husband more or less self diagnosed almost three years ago.
I am struggling. He is my registered carer for serious health issues that are going downhill badly Esoecually with my mobility.
Not sure how to cope. I feel I have always been the driving force over 42 years. Now the children have gone I realised why. I knew something was there but I never had time to broach that side of things
My husband saying felt felt that he identified with a person with Aspbergrs on TV. (He had tears streaming down his face)has opened a can I cannot close. I feel alone and helpless as he is now in complete and utter denial. He us very, very high functioning. Bought up four kids and renovated several houses. However I feel very alone and isolated. He is completely happy in his own world. I can’t connect emotionally in any way
The hospital isolated one of my needs on discharge from a ward. It wasnt the occupational therapy I thought they would offer first. It was help from the Austism side of things.
I need emotional support as I have been waiting fours years for diagnosis. It’s hot do very complex and hard to deal with.
