I'm a mother of a 5yo boy who was diagnosed ASD and ADHD this year. Over the course of this year I have gone through a mental breakdown, 2 stints of short term disability for depression resulting in me quitting my job. But I'm still in burnout after removing the job from the equation. I've come to the conclusion that I am autistic too. What do I do now. I don't have a formal diagnosis but I need help. I'm constantly burnt out and on the brink of a meltdown. My depression meds are maxed out but I don't know what to do. Any other late diagnosed folks have suggestions or advice for me? I'm based in California USA in case that is relevant. Our son hasn't qualified for any services yet. No IEP, no regional center etc. We feel like we are on our own.
