I’ve been with this guy for 8 years have a 5yr old son which has minor autism. We’ve been soul mates could understand each other with no words everything seemed to be great at least what I thought until everything crumbled he messed up our housing situation and decided to go soul searching and find himself and travel around the world and just left me with my son with dealing with all the benefits (housing, child benefit, universal credit) having to leave my job and dealing with my son and his emotions and not being able to express what his little heart is going through (fits, arguments,aggression ect.) It’s not just hard to deal with all the nonsense this system is putting me and my son through but at the same time trying to get over him because he lies that he still loves me that he still cares and that he done it for us and maybe when he sorts his life out he wants to get back. I don’t know how to get over him because I feel angry on one side and still very loving and lonely on other side. Can someone give me a piece of mind or advice because I feel like this is killing me inside!
It must be so hard having your world turned upside down like you have. You’ve come to the right place though. There are quite a few parents here with ASD children so I’m sure many will understand what you are going though and how to help your little lad.
