Hi. Just joined online community and this my first post!
Recently found out my husband has Aspergers which explains lots of difficulties in our 40 year marriage. Don't know where to start coming to terms with this and how to deal with our relationship. Is there anyone who has been in similar siuation who can help? What books do you recommend? There are 100s when u search online!! Hope someone can give me a starting point. Feeling overwhelmed and lonely at present. Thank you.
i’m ND, my OH, NT...
there is a really good section on child rearing and marriage in the book Shy, Nerdy and Socially Inapproriate by Cynthia Kim.
here is an extract but at least gives some strategies x
Hope it helps
Links to parts 2, 3 and 4 are at the foot of the page...
btw it is written by an Aspie......from an ND perspective
Hope it helps... hats off to you Caz. As the wonky one in my relationship I know just how frustrating I can be!
Thank you again for your kind reply and honesty though I'm sure NT partner can be just as frustrating to AS partner!!! I'm hoping I can start to understand and find ways of making relationship work for both of us. Early days but not giving up!
Never give up and never surrender as long as you both feel that you contribute more than you negate.
love your spirit! Good luck
