I usually have a positive outlook on Asperger’s and my son. I honestly would not change his personality but there are things that make life hard for him. I have written a lot about the events that occurred a couple of weeks ago and how he needs to get back in to the routine. Today was not the day. He had agreed to go back today but when the time came he became upset. I tried to push but he just became upset. He seems very depressed to me. He was saying “I don’t care” and that he doesn’t trust the school. In talking to him it seems that he really does want to go to school but he is afraid something bad will happen. He needs to feel safe & secure there.
I hate when he becomes depressed because there is no talking to him. He just says that he doesn’t care and that he doesn’t deserve anything. It is really quite heartbreaking. At one point this morning he was curled up in the corner of his room on the floor. I hate it and I am only sharing this info here because although we say Asperger’s is awesome it sure isn’t easy. He clearly needs time to recover from the incident a couple of weeks ago and get back into the routine but it is really a struggle for him.
Once he started to calm down I did take a picture of him. He is laying on the hallway floor, God bless that cat!
