DocM, I don't really have anything for you both, except to keep talking with each other and finding a new way of understanding and communicating, and being patient with one another. At least one thing going for you is that, as you wrote, you really are trying.

It’s difficult because as they say if you’ve met someone with autism you have met someone with autism, we are all so different, I have trouble understanding both my sons as we are all similar but they are also very different too!

I'm glad they have been of some help :)

I must admit I'm still muddling my way through everything. Had a bit of a mental breakdown this year and am slowly picking up the pieces again, but it's difficult to try and work out what's due to being autistic, what's due to ADHD, what's caused by genuine work stress, what's prompted by the pandemic, what's down to underlying anxiety & depression. It's all just a big mess :(

Got something to say?
