Splitting up with the ex husband, having to move into private rent as me and my son dont qualify for housing through the council as they claim we are adequately housed. My son has autism so I’m there for him all the time just feeling lost in myself and looking for friends 😊
Hi, I’m a new member of this forum. Your description is very near to mine. I have a son with Autism and learning difficulties. I’ve moved out of my marital home and feel lost. My son is coping well as he knows the house we’ve moved in to, and that is what is keeping me motivated.
It’s hard when children are involved especially those with extra difficulties. My son doesnt know the house were going to, I have tried to involve him as much as possible but he doesnt want to leave his home and doesnt understand why 😕 I really do feel for him although he is holding up well minus a few meltdowns. We move next week, luckily he has a good supportive school who can put lots of things in place for him there too. Think they are stronger than we realise. I hope your son continues to stay strong. As for us we just muddle through. I find the autism world very lonely.
It shouldnt be lonley but within the same breath it shouldnt be insular either. I find some groups to do with Autism and LD keep themselves close knit. Doesnt help that lonely feeling. Try all familiar stuff. Belongings, familiar items, bedding etc in the new house. if you make a house a familair home it will definitley help. There will be still the difficult times but the continuity of yourself will hold with your son. Stay strong on that side of things and it will work. And try and stay strong for yourself but thats a different story which unfortunatley im looking for salvation myself.
