    It is just nice to know there are people out there I can talk to if I ever need to, it's been a long and hard journey for me and my daughter, she was diagnosed with aspergers when she was 12 but didn't actually get any help for it until she was 16 then they just out her on antidepressants, eventually at 18 she was seen by adult services and has been on correct medication, age 19 she was also diagnosed with ADHD so is now on that medication also, it has been a nightmare with permanent exclusion from school at age 13, she has been to 15 different provisions and recently she had been sectioned and was in hospital for over 2 months after taking numerous overdoses and lots of self harming
