It seems rather cyclical with our son, as well. He'll go for days and days being so SWEET and good and doesn't drive anyone up the wall and his behavior report from school comes home decently (not stellar, but decent - which we'll happily take!), and even though we still go through the routine of gi...

Depending on the size of circle needed, could he not trace a glass or a can?

With compasses, for me, I have to use them to draw first the right half of the circle from "top" to "bottom", then do the other half the same way - not the whole thing all around in one turn. I can't quite manage that.

The social convention of rushing to the bedside, the whole trappings of the funeral, etcetera are just that, social conventions. Ignore away. I didn't rush to a particular bedside because all I could think to say was, "You twisted b***h. Even now I can watch you pull the strings on your little pupp...

i never understood it either........but most people ( family members) seem to be stuck on making you feel guilty for not rushing to the bedside of a dying person. Well I mean, if the invalid in question showed you nothing but scorn and disdain toward you your whole life (I'm projecting a bit here -...

i feel badly that my grandmother is ill, but still harbor some resentment towards her due to issues during my childhood.......i'll go to the funeral, but honestly have no desire to see her now. I know how that is. Just because someone is old and sick doesn't make up for the fact that when they were...

The first thing the psychologist discussed was why so many Mum's of Aspies suffer depression. The ones that hit home with me were: - Feelings of rejection (yes I've been rejected by other Mum's and dumped by 'friends') - Feelings of loneliness - Feelings of not being good enough. Not up to the job ...

You have to let go of that eternal optimism and let go of that desire to control, "If I just do this. . . . they will love me" "If she only said/did that, I would know that she really cares". Because you can't control anything or anyone else but yourself. Totally agree with this. Haven't mastered i...

Why do I have a hard time believing people when they compliment me, but when they criticize me, I internalize every word and take it so much to heart? :? Maybe you believe the negative things that people are saying about you and not the good things. If you think negatively about yourself it is most...

I am, and I did, and it didn't go too well. Now I have twice as many parents who seem inherently disappointed by me. :( I feel like I've spend my whole life trying to prove my worth to people, and it never worked. Didn't matter what I did or didn't do, how well I did in school, what my job was, who ...

Maybe I should start a thread at "The Haven." :( I can definitely relate to not feeling wanted by your parents. I was adopted as a baby, and reunited with my birth mother 16 years ago, when I was in my early 20s. Adoptive parents were never happy, split up when I was 10. Adoptive father remarried th...

Just so ya know- I'm in therapy, and have been in therapy for a few years. It is just hard because my husband is very isolating from the family, won't go to therapy. My son is explosive and always has been. For both of them it is a part of the whole ASD thing. We are all on the spectrum and that's ...
