My little boy just turned 2 1/2 and was diagnosed with asd 5 months ago. It changed me in a lot of ways. I'm not used to opening up about my feelings and not one of those guys that is on social media so bear with me.
I've always been a rough and tumble, depressed and angry ,alpha male type my whole life. I had a troubled upbringing in NYC and felt like I could take on anything the world throws at me. My boy was born right before I turned 26 and I made a conscious effort to be more of a actual human being that shows emotion.
I work very hard now I have a successful business and live well. I naively thought my personal
life's problems were over and depression and intense anger were behind me.
When my son was diagnosed I learned how wrong I was. I can't sleep right ,I can't socialize right and I'm just not the same person. I am unrecognizable to myself. I'm beginning to think I am autistic currently, which wouldn't be a surprise to me.
I just wanted to get this off my chest and I hope I will be able to cope one day. I plan on seeing a therapist soon. My family has been wonderful, his early intervention teachers have been wonderful and I plan on putting him in private school when he turns 3.
My son is a beautiful kid and I just want him to have the same opportunities as any normal child,teenager and young adult would have.
Thanks for listening.
