Hi, finally got around to logging into the forums.

Me: was diagnosed with Aspergers a couple of months ago, following our 2 year olds ASD diagnosis late in 2010. I'm a bit of a mess right now because as well as coping with my sons early intervention and my dx, our baby daughter died earlier this year.

I'm quite relieved about my dx (explains so much!) but I am at a bit of a loss as to what the rest of my life is going to look like. My old job as an events/relationship manager was exhausting (now I know why) but I'm not sure what work I would like to do in the future. There is no rush to decide, but I guess you could say I am obsessing over it :-)

Would love to hear from any Aspies who have gone through the process of retraining or from any Aspie parents who have lost a child.
