Easy for someone who has only NT kids to say that to me huh? Very easy "oh don't worry, he will be okay"... maybe they are right. Maybe my son will be okay. He is high functioning and had early intervention started right before he turned 3. He is smart and stuff and maybe the odds are in my favor that he will be fine. But how can someone possibly just throw that at me!! Especially someone who knows nothing about what I have to deal with?? They can take it for granted knowing that their kids will one day drive a car, get a job, move out, live independently and perhaps even get married. With the help that my son is getting, the kind of help that their kids don't need, hopefully he will too but how can one be so sure? There is always a small chance that my son still won't have a fulfilling life! There is always a small chance that I will have to take care of him forever. And the thought of that scares me because my health is not at its best, my physical and mental. How the hell could I possibly care for someone when I am like 80 years old or something? Okay now like I said the odds are low, but.. the point is, how can anyone be so sure about my future and say "don't worry it will be fine, he will be okay" I cant help it, and I know its not fair on my part but I just feel so much resentment towards those who don't have to deal with what I do! They whine about the most trivial things like my brother does, and really have nothing serious to worry about! I have real worries! So yeah, its nice if they are trying to make me feel better but how the hell does one know for sure that "it will be okay?"

I will not go to a therapist for some guilt feelings. Ive asked on multiple forums about this trouble. This one was the best forum by far. Thanks to you, guys! But what should i do? I cant get this obsession out of my head.
You know the story, i had underweight from 16 to 20 years with 55 kg due to anxiety. Then at 20 years old the weight was very normal. I had bad sitting positions in front of the computer at home and also in school for many hours a day. Maybe i had poor nutrition or lack of minerals although the blood tests didn't say that. At 19 years the 20° S curve scoliosis was diagnosed. Noone saw it before,...
