New to Group

Hi, I'm new to the group and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a 51-year-old mom with two girls, age 12 and 15. My 15-year-old daughter has high-functioning autism and a few other medical issues including hydrocephalus and scoliosis. I work part-time as an event coordinator for a local Christian crisis pregnancy clinic. I give a lot of support, encouragement and advice to other moms with kids like my daughter but find myself coming up empty when it comes to finding advice for myself. Most of my friends and acquaintances who have kids with special needs are much younger and their kids are younger than mine. I need advice from moms with teens who have special needs.

Glad to be here...thanks.

Welcome! I have a teenage boy with aspergers. The best way to get advice in this group is to start new posts about whatever you're interested in talking about! Don't be shy. This group is awesome and supportive. Ask away!!

Welcome to the group.  I have a 13 yr old daughter with high functioning autism, generalized anxiety disorder, and major depressive disorder.  This group has given me lots of support in difficult times.

I'm sorry ...... my daughter is much younger too. She's just about to be 3. But I see you probably live in Texas. I live in Texas .... DFW area. Welcome to the group. There are lots of supportive women here who have kids of all ages. :)

 Well, I've got you beat (unfortunately!) in the age category.  I'm 53, my son turns 13 next month.  He has HFAD, Anxiety Disorder and mild tic disorder.  This is a very supportive group of moms, with kids of all ages.  I've found a lot of advice and support here, so welcome to the group!
