I have a 13 year old daughter with Aspergers and I am afraid that as of today, my marriage has completely fallen apart because of it. I have read so many books and try to do what I think is best and works for her. My husband, who refuses to educate himself on it all, says that he has "his way" of dealing with it. No matter what I say to her, he tells me that I'm taking the wrong approach or that I'm too hard and can't just accept her for who she is. Yet, I heard him standing and calling her a liar today. When I questionned his choice of words, he believes that his way is the right way. We just have so much chaos in our house right now and it's such a sad place to live. My daughter makes even the smallest things difficult for us and we just can't seem to agree on anything. He took my children and left me here alone. I feel like I have failed at absolutely everything and don't know where to turn. I have no family support and am not sure if me and my kids would be better off trying this alone. I'm just tired of feeling beat down all the time and when I express that, I'm told that it's not about me, be strong, accept it, etc. I'm never allowed to feel bad for myself or just to take some time to be sad. Be strong is all I hear. Has anyone experienced this is their marriage and how does it (or can it) survive?
