Does Your Adult Autistic Offspring Struggle With Being A Work-o-holic And Subsequent Burnout?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

It's hard for me to slow down. When my body says to rest but my mind says go-go-go. Battles that rage in my head daily.
As evident I'm a work-o-holic. From the time I get up until I go to bed, I'm working. A Full-time Job and at least two passion projects that I try to give attention to every day.

@A MyAutismTeam Member this resonates with me a LOT! I'm glad I don't ruminate like I used to.

Does Your Child Struggle With Anger Issues?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

When I was around eight years old, I began to have anger issues. I had outbursts, would call people names, and would even hit others. It came to a head when I slapped my grandmother in front of my family. My mother took me to a therapist and after three or so months I was much better. She didn't conclude I was Autistic for some reason, but that's a whole other story.

A MyAutismTeam Member

My son avoids conflict. He only hits himself if he's stressed out & overwhelmed. He's never had any angry outbursts or anything like that. I try to keep a very positive, calm & relaxing environment… read more
