Ask someone with Aspergers anything
I will answer one question of your choosing.
I know there are a lot of parents who struggle with their child's diagnosis, and a lot of adults with adult diagnosis who struggle with their own identity following diagnosis. I've been there. It's OK.
It's been a bit of a journey for me from my own diagnosis, to finding out that three of my children are also affected by Aspergers. I would love to put my experience to good use by helping others who may be struggling. Ask me anything, and I will do my very best to answer your questions, offer you advice, or give you tips on coping skills that have worked for me.
If you have questions for someone with an Aspergian mind, please reach out to me and ask! I'm happy to answer. You can ask a random question, or one related to your own or a family member's diagnosis or coping or whatever.
Training & Qualifications
I was diagnosed with Aspergers as an adult in 2014 and have learned a lot in the last couple of years. I've worked with an excellent therapist who specializes in Aspergers and adult diagnosis of Aspergers. In 2015 one of my children was diagnosed with Aspergers, and it became abundantly clear to us that two more of my children also have it. I have put my own skills to good use to help my kids cope too, admittedly with mixed success - every Aspergian is different and what works for one may not always work for another.
Availability & Preferences
I'm an at-home mom, so I'm available most of the time.
