I just signed up because I'm in need of support and ideas for myself and my children.  I am a single mom of 3 teens,  my first born having Asperger's, OCD, and Agoraphobia, it's been a lonely road for us all, and I'm here to change that! Nice to say hi to everyone,  and I look forward to reading,  learning,  and chatting!

    Hi @lizzymomof3

    Welcome to the community.  It sounds very difficult for you, especially if you have a child with agoraphobia.  What kind of support are you already getting?  Do you get support from a social worker?  Do you manage to go out at all?
    Let us know how it is affecting you and what kind ideas you are looking for.

    Take care
    Beverley
