To recap I have a 20 yr old son with aspergers/autism. depression, anxiety, I guess my biggest struggle is knowing what he needs from me. he once said that he doesn't want to feel like he needs to be fixed. just understand how to cope and deal with things he doesn't understand like social communication and why he isn't motivated to take basic care of himself. even with that realization, he still doesn't brush his teeth and is looking at even more root canals and false teeth in the next 2 years. he is in defensive mode for sure and shut down even though he goes to community college which was his choice but is doing just under average work there. any suggestions besides just being there?
