Trauma can impact how the brain functions at any age, it makes sense that significant trauma in childhood could seriously alter brain development.

Also, a society built exclusively by and for allistic folkx doesn't really produce any UNtraumatised autistic kids, so it could be hard to say which is the cart and which the horse.

Raemondo you have pretty much described the biggest challenge in my job. I was just discussing with a school today the need for trauma informed training as well as training around neurodevelopmental difference. The diagnostic process (which I’m not directly involved with) is even more challenging.

Had a stupid incident with my husband and he left. We have our ups and downs but this was just silly. He threw his plate of cheese and crackers at me, I did shout and say I didn’t deserve to be treated that way and told him to F off! I just need to get it down somewhere, quietish. Maybe it will all blow over when he comes back.

I need to sleep! I’ve not been well the past couple of days with a chesty cough. I’m just worried about what’s going to happen next.

Throwing things definitely warrants being told to F off, nobody deserves to be treated that way and absolutely not a poorly spouse.

When he comes back I hope you can have a calm conversation about it, and not just sweep it under a rug without addressing it (or schedule a time to talk about it properly if you're both still too upset).

It will probably be very uncomfortable, but better in the long run to get to the bottom of why he would do such a thing than just hope that nothing like it will happen again.

Hope things work out.
Agree with Rae, your response was justified. Noone should have anything thrown at them. X
