NT Child of an Asperger Parent

My mother was diagnosed with Asperger’s when I was in my late 20’s- before she had been diagnosed with manic depression/ bi-polar disorder.

I could only find a handful of articles/ discussions which address the topic but they are surface level at best. There are not any scientific articles or researched based theories on the effects and/ or therapy treatments which might help NT children in their journey of understanding their experiences.

If you come across my page and have some additional resources to share- that would be amazing. I want to create a safe space to discuss and share experiences. I do not want to demonize anyone. I experienced extreme trauma and I will talk about those things. But my goal is to find understanding and peace so I can heal. We all deserve peace within ourselves and the ability to love and be loved.
