Interesting question . . . . How did you end up here?
While washing my dishes I like to think and found myself wondering how did we all end up on this message board. Of course I know the obvious we all have children or are someone living within the spectrum, but what made you seek it out? For me I was at a very desperate time in my life and I felt so alone. My once very gentle son had started having meltdowns and aggression daily and for the life of me I didn't know how to help him. I was working with the school, behavioral therapists and counselors and it just kept escalating. I remember the first night I joined this board in December my son had been physically aggressive with me and had left bruises for the first time. About a week later someone had posted they were going thru something similar and thats when I knew I was in the right place. I started coming to the boards daily, getting advice and slowly I started to feel better. I liked getting different points of view, and suggestions. We finally found the right answers for my son in April, he has not been aggressive or had a meltdown since April 13th for that I am grateful. I consider a lot of you ladies my true friends, even though we may never see each other in person you all have a special place in my heart :)
