    I went to the doctor today

    and told them what's been going on with me mentally and emotionally. At age 7 I was diagnosed by a phychiatrist and they said I have ADHD, ocd, and I am a borderline autistic. I was treated for my ADHD and ocd. However not my autism symptoms. I had no idea what I had growing up...

    I'm a single mother of three children,

    2 have autism. My daughters are 10 years old. They are fraternal twins. It's hard as a single mother to deal with autistic children on your own. Not only is it lonely but it is stressful and expensive at the same time. I don't wish this on anyone not even my worst enemy.

    I have mild autism and my little brother's

    Well, I'm going to have to get a divorce.

    1st reason was maybe wife and I rushed it, 2cd reason is because my stepson can't get benefits because how much I make. We've been trying to get my stepson into a residential school for autistic children and keep hitting dead ends. The public school will not refer him, my guess...
