I have great freinds, I can totally lose it and not feel as though i need to go home.

Alec is starting to become aware of his inability to socialise in a sociably acceptable manner. This morning at brunch at Andrew and Danelle's we took his bike, I incorrectly thought this would make him more comfortable, Alec got on his bike rode around then got off, Bri got on, Alec said that's my bike, Bri didn't get off, Alec pulled the bike out from under her. Thankfully she wasn't hurt but Alec ran away and hid. I couldn't even get out the front door with the bike before I was sobbing. I sat in Sam's room with him for a while and he played trains. After about 1/2 an hour he came back out and played really well with everyone. He was even able to tell on other kids..LOL then they all sat and watched a Thomas video so he was in heaven.

I must take the the booklette Can I tell you about Asperger Syndrome to morning tea tomorrow, hopefully it will explain it to everyone and then they can ask question from there. I just saw some other books she has written I would like, might order them from the library. I want a copy of this one, it will come in handy I think.

I feel adrift, i'm only ever about a minute away from tears I need to know things and do things to help him but it looks like there aren't any specific therapies for aspergers.
