I am a survivor of 2 suicides - I found my mother on March 17, 1964 @ age 9 - she wasn't dead yet, and I was by myself with her for some hours trying to save her. On March 16, 1992 my husband hung himself. This brought me to my knees. I have a teenager with Asperger's (autism) who tried to commit suicide at age 8, as a means of coping with a crowded noisy school environment. Placed him in a self-contained class. Each time we tried to mainstream him he became suicidal again. I finally said stop - put him on certificate track and let it go. Now he is 16 & angry because he is not diploma bound. He really wants to be a chef & go to college. I feel guilty & don't know how to help him. Was I too overprotective (that's what the school says) and do you have some advice for losing the guilt and helping my son have the career he wants?

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...
