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?
