So I am diagnosed depressed. I didn't really need the doctor to tell me that. Husband was diagnosed 6 months ago with Aspergers and my son diagnosed last week with ADHD For years I have been trying to tell family and frineds that there is something wrong with members of my family. There are those that have really stuck by me and offered support and understanding but then there are a lot of people that have told me the following my husband is lazy and horrible my family is dysfunctional I don't discipline the children correctly why am i giving my son blue coloured drinks ! i need to get rid of all the preservatives in their diet i need to make a more homely environment for the family. perhaps you should work less hours i married him ! i don't set clear boundaries for the family why don't i look after my kids needs better I am really angry that these people (a lot of them are closely related to me) have failed to look beyond their own narrow minded attitude of what has been going on. Failed to give me the benefit of the doubt and acknowledge my observations that these were symptoms of a much bigger issue. I feel very much alone in my situation. We are not a "normal" family and there will always be this "weird" element to the happenings in our lives that others will be totally ignorant to. it just makes me want to withdraw from all these people.
