What I've discovered though is a massive lack of places to go for people in my situation. Gave everything to a marriage that died, and now find myself alone and somewhat lonely. All I really want is to meet up with someone or someones for coffee and a chat. Make some friends with people who might be in the same situation. I can't be the only one.
I also have a son who is autistic, and was wondering if anyone had any clues to groups that meet up about that. Contacted my LAC, but there doesn't seem to be anything where you can go and meet with people to actually talk face to face. Lots of counselling and respite care, but nothing to just go and unload once a week or so. If anyone has any ideas, or is looking to get together, let me know.
Also, finally (I promise), does anyone have any clues about how to make a 5 year-old stop talking? It's the only way I know my son is asleep.
