my daughter is in her early 30's and I am sure that she has ASD. As a child she seemed so normal and sociable but gradually as an adult she developed more and more traits of the autism that her brother has been diagnosed with. Recently she seems to have lost all the joy in her life -she goes to work during the week ms the rest of the time she lives in her room and does not interact with anyone. Over the years I have tried to help her and have persuades her to go to the GP but all they do is prescribe anti depressions and tell her to contact I talk. I fwel she needs more specialised help but don't know where to go or how to persuade her to seek that help. I feel at the end of my tether as she shows no signs of ever moving out or being independent and she seems to have become increasingly hostile towards me despite my efforts to help her.
sorry to hear your daughter's having a tough time.
I'm aware that although I'm 53, I'm still 16 inside. As everyone else grows up, they become more complex with their lives entwined with secrets & lies and they just become so old and lacking in fun. It could be that your daughter is finding it hard to deal with this world of complexity and it's wearing her out during the week so all she wants to do is escape from it in her safe-haven on the weekends.
