I’m going to look into her blogs and books some more.  I like what she has to say about needing to trust herself and not to feel guilt.  And I suspect that based on today’s medical knowledge of things like autism and Aspergers syndrome, Nick would probably fit into that spectrum somewhere.  But thanks to all the coping skills he learned over the years he is now a successful young man, in a career he loves with a bright financial future ahead of him.  His bosses and co-workers respect him.  He’s even planning on moving out into his own apartment within a year – and only 5 years ago I had a psychiatrist telling me he might never function well enough to live on his own!
