Wow! Would anyone else be upset if your husband said this about your child?
We were out getting something to eat, waiting in line . We were talking about when I started to notice that our son may be autistic and how at the time he couldn't talk about it and would just get mad and yell at me. He said he had time to deal with it and is OK about talking about it now. It's been known between us for a while that it was thought that I had autism as a child but was never diagnosed. He says to me how hard it's been dealing with him and he feels bad for our son, but then says if he could go back he would of never have had him. I was like "what?" He says " I love him so much, I just don't want him to have a horrible time". Then I say "well you love me do you think I should never have been born?" I don't feel this way about my son. I think that he's very high functioning and will just need a little more help than NT's. I understand him when most don't, I guess it's good that I'm his mother, we're the same. I love him more than anything and will teach him, protect him, help him and never be ashamed of him.
I don't know maybe I'm overreacting?
