As a parent now of older kids and a teen, married to a spouse on the autistic spectrum (although undiagnosed) I've got a fairly wide outlook on life. I've had psychiatric treatment on and off for years since my teens but I feel that there are ways now to keep myself better informed, maybe that will help me help myself more, understand myself a little better and hopefully find a friendly face or two on the way?
