But what if that toxic person is your high functioning autistic 18 year old son? He recently moved back in with me after living with his dad for 5 years and he drains everything out of me everyday. He also has no empathy for anything or anybody which scares me. I know a lot of these problems. are characteristics of some people on the autism spectrum but some days I just want to not have him near me. He scares me and I hate myself for saying this but some days I don’t like him at all!! i Don’t ever want to give up on my son but today when I was listing to Dr Phil’s podcast about toxic people, my son came to mind.
I am a great grandfather of a beautiful bubbly precious little girl i am not asking for money or anything like that, i am just praying that you will take notice and help us shine a light on this dastardly affliction to help raise money for research. my granddaughter who is the mother of this beautiful little angel is a school teacher who has become a full time fund raiser for the dravet syndrome foundation, as you probably know unless a treatment or cure is found she will only grow into a very difficult life. Please help us shine a light on this, prior to her diagnosis i have never heard of this, i like many of the people i talk to think i am mispronouncing turrets. she is lucky she has a wonderful support group, she has amazing parents and grandparents. my grand daughter (Wendy Fry) tried a podcast but i don't know how it went. Please help all we want is some recognition and enlightenment of this dastardly affliction. Walt Grzesnikowski Penny's mom and dad
