Response to Dx
I have been meaning to write you, just found some time, sorry it has been a few days. Been thinking about you alot though. I know you are worried but you are closer to making life better for DS. Now that you know, you can trudge forward to get him what he needs, which I have no doubt you will do successfully. I don't know much about autism so I can't give you any advice, just support. But as you know I have been fighting to get my DS diagnosed and treated for ADD and finally have. My DH was completely against meds and it took my DS asking for the medication to get DH to open up to it. Now it is interesting because I will have his coworkers say things to me that my DH says about how unbelievable well the meds have worked and how well DS is doing, but has he ever said it to me? Nope, not once. So unsure what it is with the guys and their reluctance to medicate, but seems common. Turns out with my DH, I think it was the fear of the unknown and possibly negative things he could have heard about the meds on the tv. My DH finally admitted that he was worried about addiction and my DS never coming off it and only needing more. He just didn't know enough to feel comfortable but I just know he doesn't regret it. So whatever you need to do, just do it, because a mom knows, we just do and you have to follow it.
