    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to pick your brains.
    I am 43 years old and I have two sons: one is ASD (aged 6) and the other is 4 (just) and is being tested. My husband is 41 and is half way through his own assessment. Looks like I'm the odd one out!

    My husband works away, 4 days a week.

    I also have chronic fibromyalgia.

    Yet, I feel as if I'm missing another child in the family.

    Anyone else in/been in this situation?

    Thanks for reading x

    The adhd and Tourette’s is from their dad, my ex but the autism is from me
