My 19 year old son has aspergers and I need a friend who also has a teenager who has this. He blows up all the time and tells me I don't do a thing for him, etc. I turned down his soup on the stove today because he had it on high. He grabbed my arm hard and threw it back. I told him not to touch me like that and to tell me not to touch the stove. I wish I could find help for him. He needs social therapy. My husband says we can't make him get help now because of his age. My son has done much worse. He attacked his younger brother (3 years younger) and put scratches on his face and bruises. My middle son broke it up. I never know what to do. I have a couple of books and I refer to them a lot. I read a lot online about aspergers. He has a girlfriend of two years and he thinks the world of her and her family. If they only knew. When my son is not working or taking college courses or with his girlfriend he stays in his room and watches Scrubs over and over. He also loves this one video computer game that he plays. It is difficult to have a conversation with him much of the time. I do my best to over look his nasty comments to me and not take it personal. I can't help take things personal when he says I'm not a good mother. We bought him his own car, lap top computer, pay for his gas and insurance, college, cell phone, clothes, you name it! He does what he dam well pleases because he has these outburts. My husband is very soft with him while I want help for my son and confront him on things as they occur. Does anyone have advice for me?

He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
