I've read a lot about babies who have autism spectrum disorders, but I have never read about abdl mommies with AS. My boyfriend noticed I was on the spectrum ever since we started dating (I was never officially diagnosed, but a therapist I saw briefly my freshman year of college said I probably have it).
Our relationship dynamic started out as daddy/baby girl, but it evolved into mommy/baby boy. Having AS makes it difficult for me to assert myself as a mommy. I have no trouble being assertive and nurturing towards my little one, but it is difficult to feel like a caregiver when I struggle with so many simple things. Are there any other mommies on the spectrum out there who could share their experiences and/or offer advice?
