Yes- I am glad it is active to. I think I have a bit put my head in the sand since my symptoms are a little low right now aside from not being able to do the things I need to.... and probably some impulsivity I am in a new relationship and so far portraying a fairly normal person.... what a fasade. My therapist said there is no reason to tell him early on and I am low on the spectrum anyhow. He does know I have had really rough times and take a few mental health meds. He was totally cool with it. What I hate right now is the fear of abandonement that is so strong. I keep thinking I am going to do or say the wrong thing and he is going to be out the door.
As far as handling my kids I think I am doing pretty good. I zone out a lot... that would be there biggest complaint. They practically have to yell to get my attention at times and I am working on being in the present for short periods of time.
