I had no idea where to put this post, but this seems like as good a place as any.. Mods- If you feel that the title needs changing or this is in the wrong place, please change it as you see fit.
My husband has Aspergers. He was only diagnosed a few years ago so I am still figuring out how to best interact with him. I was thinking it would be great if we had a support thread for anyone who's SO is ASD.
I feel very lonely at times. If I change the order in which I do something, DH gets very upset. Until I realized this was his Aspieness, it kind of made me feel like I couldn't do anything right. I recently learned that if we are in public, and he is avoiding eye contact with me and being very quiet that he is overwhelmed/shutting down, I need to get him out of there.
I don't mean to make it sound all bad, I am just trying to address the challenges.
