Hi: Well, I was wondering how other husbands and or wives deal with the autism monster. I really try and accept what is going on in my life with my boys and my husband. I wish that I felt that my husband could accept my son for who he is and not what autism has done to him and our family. I know that my husband loves Sean, but I wish that I couldn't see the look of disapointment in his eyes. I know he wishes Sean could be a typical 5 year old little boy and so do I, but I wish he could just deal with this diagnosis already. Sean was diagnosed at almost 3 years and I feel like instead of us accepting him and feeling proud and happy of all he has acomplished we are always trying to find the next new thing to get him to be what we thought he would be. Don't get me wrong I love Sean more than life itself and I would give anything for him. I just wish that my husband could get out of the mourning stage and just get on with it and be happy that we have such a beautiful little boy inside and out. Truthfully I feel guilty for even writing this, but I am wondering if anyone else is going through this and how you are handling it. Thanks a lot. Denise

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...
