Tuesday 31st

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
My Aspie son's befriender came today and instead of taking him out he helped him sort out some papers, do his washing and make a start on tidying his room. He also helped him choose a course to do at the Regional College starting in September.

I have had several calls from my daughter stressing out over stuff.

Fortunately no complaints from my autistic son over work, so am assuming things went ok there today. He and I went to collect the dog from the kennels and do other errands. He has gone to get his snacks from Tescos.

Sometimes it feels like caring for asd folk gets worse instead of better - or maybe I'm getting too old for the whole thing!

Best wishes to you all.

It feels as though it's getting worse because you never ever know what different problem is going to be thown up from day to day and finding a way to deal with the probs can be hard.
There's always something new to deal with...
Unfortunately, as has already been said, as the years go on, different problems present themselves! It IS hard caring for aspergers' people, but it won't all be bad - just different! Image (my son is now nearly 35 and only been diagnosed for a few years)
