I have an 18year daughter with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and its soooo hard for us as a family right now that any advice or help will be truly appreciated. Firstly, I am not one to ask for help, I will battle on until \I reach despertion. That is now. My daughter was under the child mental health up until she reached 18 then they signer her off and now I have nothing and nobody to help me. I HATE it being called "the child mental health" because its sounds as if, I don't know really but it don't sound good. When I asked what would happen to her now that they was signing her off they told me that she isn't severe enough to be referred to the adult mental health so now we are in limbo. Its getting really really hard now. She has began to tell lies and she wants to be an average 18 year old but she has no common sense and she is VERY promiscuous. I have tried everything. I have tried to speak to her, but I am not sure whether she is purposly ignoring me or even if its part of the autism. AARRGGHHHH I feel so helpless. Its really starting to come into itself now that he is getting older and don't see any future for her. Its breaking up my family all the arguments about her and her behaviour. I feel that divorce is coming and I don't know what to do. We have tries for 18 years or her I have fought the education system and the health authourity but now no one wants to know and I have not got a clue who else to turn too. I also have a son who is 8 and he is ine but its sooooo hard because he has more common sense than her ( thats not mean't in a bad way). We are soo frustrsted and while me and her dad are going through this my daughter is not bothered. Nothing. Please give me some help and advice because if we get divorced I would let my husband take my son and I would stay with our daughter because my son deserves a "normal life". This would be a hell of a sacrifice from me but I love them soo much I would do this.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
