I am happy to have this support community. It's been a lonely slog through years of misunderstanding and ignorance. My beautiful Asperger son is 42. When he was a child nobody understood him. His father used the fear approach to control him, and as a result he still lives in a heightened state of anxiety, depression and paranoia daily. His interactions with the criminal justice system have been a living nightmare for us. It continues even now. I pray he doesn't end up in solitary confinement again in a prison where he is tortured for being "different". Thanks for your love and most of all thanks for the information you freely share.
