I've been very depressed--my parents just left town (I'm married but still feel like a single person with a roommate whom she doesn't know particularly well)--they'd been visiting for a week. It was very nice to see people I'm very close to again, and we had fun visiting museums, eating out, etc. Their departure has left me feeling very lonely and ruminating on the past and ruined/wasted opportunities and such.
I'm not exactly suicidal, because I'm a very non-violent/pain averse person (and am a bit too apathetic right now to bother with anything like that, anyway).
The past couple days, I've been struggling to take a shower. (I dislike showering, anyway--the sensation of being wet and all the other tactile nastiness that goes with it.) I've played my husband's video games off and on. I've eaten candy (I have almost no appetite). I've tried to read a novel, but it's hard to care enough to continue with that. Plus, I have a lot of work to do cleaning my apartment.
My life has become a meaningless inconvenience for me. I don't seem to have any purpose. I'm seeing my psychologist tomorrow, and my psychiatrist the following week (I'm going to ask him about increasing the dose of my Effexor XR from 150 to 225 mg/day).
I miss being younger, living near family and my only friend, and having optimism about the future.

As your know AS people are smart, and there feelings can be hurt. Sec 504, and No child left behind, and american's with disabilities act. (If you are in the USA) Plus, if your son is AS, you might be able to get a recipiants rights violation going. We do have to teach our kids right from wrong, but it sounds like the teacher was abusing your child, to me. I have many problems with the principal at the school my son goes to, and it will probebly end up in a lawsuit. I have a hearing problem, so I can only normally comprehend with written instructions, I have it set up so I e-mail the principal, and secretaries, etc. This type of communication is invaluable in a court of law, time/date stamp, clearly written communications, great documentation. I hope this helps a little. spirited
