Isolated Mother Of Autistic SonMy son has severe asd with very aggressive behavior. Because of problems in the past I just don't even bother trying to make friends anymore. Nobody wants to spend time with my son and it hurts so much that I don't want anyone in my life that's just going to make me feel even worse. But now I'm so lonely. My husband's in rehab right now so I don't even have him. He couldn't handle the stress of taking care of our son so he turned to drugs.
I can't go anywhere with my son. He just freaks out and attacks me. The other day someone called an ambulance so he could have phsyciatric care when he was attacking me in the middle of downtown and wouldn't stop biting me and lunging at me.
Today he attacked me on the way home from his school. Got tons of bite marks on my arm now where he broke my skin with his teeth right through my clothes. I can't believe I have to live like this. Therapy isn't helping, meds not helping much either.
I'm 30 years old and don't even have 1 friend. My life is so messed up I don't even think there's someone out there with whom I can relate. Plus I'm too embarrassed to let anyone else see how I live. I just wish I had a different life. I just wish my son was well so we could enjoy life. I'm tired of being beated up by my own kid. Tired of trying to hide from everyone. Don't want to be by myself anymore.
