    I don’t have any advice to offer but I’ll keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. If I could give you a hug I would but I’ll send you a virtual hug ???? And remember God never gives us more than we can bear.

    Thank you for sharing! I have a 13 year old with Aspergers/SPD and a 4 year old that we adopted that we are still trying to find a diagnosis. Our struggles were and are much like yours. Family and friends have fallen by the wayside, as they think we have spoiled children. I know the pain, the anger, the fear. Many prayers for you in your journey. Remember it is your journey. This is your son. And he is amazing even in the midst of the hard days. You are rocking it!

    My heart is fully with you and your entire family right now. I’m sending so much love, acceptance, support and kindness.

    And this is probably my favorite educational resource for Aspserger’s. 😀 http://livingwithadifferentbrain.com/videos/

    Oh, my goodness. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

    Courtney, THANK YOU for sharing. So many parents will benefit from what you just wrote, me included!!!

    I know suggestions are often not what you need at this time, and I REALLY don’t want to add to your anxiety, but just thought I’d through something out there for consideration, take it or leave it. I have a friend whose child has exhibited EXACTLY what you’ve described. The strep was actually connected and a possible cause for many of his symptoms. Unfortunately he’s on a life-long antibiotic regimen for it. It is called PANDAS syndrome (an acronym for something).

    I pray this information is helpful. Praying you have the right answers for your precious boy!!!
