Hi my name is Trish. I have a son that was diagnosed with AS in November. He is a good kid. He has a lot of the social issues and repeative issues I have read on this site. It can be very heart breaking to watch him struggle with everyday tasks. It has been difficult for my family. Sometimes he cries for no reason, or he does not know why he is crying. We have to make him do things, such as fishing or going to movies, after which he has a good time. I feel alone sometimes dealing with this. I do not know anyone personally that has a child like my son. I is very hard for him to make friends and for kids to understand him. I don't want him to be treated like a baby. However, I would like the kids to be understanding. Am I making any sense? Is there anyone out there with the same issues?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
