Hugs!!!! I remember when my son was first diagnosed, I went thru a variety of emotions ranging from relief (as now I knew why he did the things he did), to sadness, worry, and feeling overwhelmed and alone. There are quite a few great groups on here for Autism-- I found it is a great place for support, advice and to talk to others who are dealing with the same issues and 'have been there done that'. Just remember he is still the same little boy you know and love- that has not changed. The only thing that has changed is he has a diagnosis. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to message me.
