Talk to your kid's doctor. There are other people who are having the same problems and the doctor is the one thing they have in common. Just ask him/her if they know of a group of mommies having your problem. Or start one yourself and see if you can hang fliers up in the office. I talked to my daughter's doctor about this (she has a somewhat uncommon heart problem) and he talked to other parents about it, asked if they needed to meet with other parents. Her doctor was out of state, but I emailed some of them a few times.
Also, look in your local paper. There is usually a list of support groups. Here, there are two or three for parents of autistic children.
