My Parents

February 24, 2008

My father is now, finally, being treated as an aspie by a psychiatrist. At my urging, he is receiving Lexapro (which I also take), which has radically transformed his behavior (for the good). For instance, he was extremely unhappy in the assisted living facility (including hitting staff who tried to help him), and he was behaving inappropriately toward women (both staff and residents). That is all gone. For the most part, he is back to his old self (such as it is).

The part that saddens me is that my mother is dead. My father drove her crazy with his lack of social skills. She thought that my father was being that way on purpose. I think it would have enormously helped my mother to know that he is autistic.
