i have written several times about aspergers and autism
for some reason i seemed to have had a lot of patients
with this diagnosis in my practice
they ranged from the lowest level to the highest level

just before i quit practicing medicine before i was diagnosed
with early mild cognitive impairment amnestic type i met
a lady one day who brought her son in for an urgent care visit

it turns out she was the wife of one of my patients
she had an ipad she was looking at and writing on when
i walked into the room
what you doing i asked
she said im working on my blog
oh i said i have a blog too
little did she know that i already knew that my days practicing
were soon to come to an end
i was just waiting for the final diagnosis

since that day weve stayed in contact via email facebook and

she has two sons with aspergers and writes about their struggles
in their day to day lives
its hard to read sometimes as she fights for whats right for them

i introduced a relative to her blog
she has followed it regularly since then
and finds it helpful as she struggles with her sons aspergers

the blog confessions of an aspergers mom is sort of a in your
face blog at times
an approach you have to take sometimes with the system to
get what your child or in her case her two boys needs

this week my relative wrote a guest blog in the
confessions of an aspergers mom

take a moment and read this blog titled end of the rainbow

for my wife she and i it was gut wrenching to read thinking of
what she and her family and her son went through and are still
going through every day with there really being no end in sight

my wife she has a special place in her heart for the relatives son and
also found this soothing in a way but sad

so now we know his full story and know why he is where
he is with his life
we understand and can accept it all
thanks for the posting
