Very sweet. He seem to be doing a great job as a parent

I wasnít surprised by how hard being a parent is either, but of course. Some things were really hard. I had lots of anxiety that something could happen to the kids, and Post part um depression.
Handling the kids wasnít so bad compared to this.
I would also never try to sell someone on being a parent.
And I donít really think it can be done. My kids make me very happy a lot and give me additional purpose in life. But it was as if I discovered a new room in my house, opened it and found there all the new love there.
I couldnít imagine it before.

Saying I'm the one person who voted yes. I was diagnosed formally as an adult after years of trying to figure out why I was different than my peers. I fell into that gap of missed diagnoses because I'm female.

Like Mike, it gave official answers to what I already knew, and clarified why certain types of treatment I was seeking just wouldn't work.

There's still a lot lacking the the adult area of help for autistics; I'm very grateful of the online community sharing anything of their experiences. This offers options I might of not considered.
