hi all. I’m the mom to a 14 year old boy who is in the autism spectrum /adhd as well- my son had been suffering for a few years with anxiety and depression. He frequently dwells over times in his life where he felt bullied and it creates flashbacks of these sad moments. Just today we came home from four days of wonderful baseball playing where he very much enjoyed the camaraderie of his teammates he even said he had a great time. However and with the understanding Other being a very exhausting weekend he fell asleep crying dwelling on those sad moments and he asked me why isn’t he happy?
