Group Description

This group is for partners/spouses (FEMALES only) of individuals suspected to have, or officially diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome - to connect here with other women facing similar situations, who understand the realities of relationships with a partner on the spectrum. Our group is a safe place where we talk about our experiences without facing disbelief, finding people who are familiar with our experiences and who offer empathy and support.

We do NOT allow males in this group, please respect our policy and do not apply for membership.

We recognize and address challenges that arise from being in a relationship with a partner who has Asperger's, share information & strategies for coping with the stress, confusion and misunderstandings that occur. We discuss our situations, learn more about Aspergers & find ways of coping with the realities of our relationships. This group is for people who seek support to find ways to help themselves and their partner to live a richer and more fulfilling life with less conflict and more cooperation. Partners in these relationships sometimes suffer from loneliness, and feelings of emotional abandonment as well as low self-esteem. We compare notes, share resources, ideas, coping strategies & lend support to people involved in relationships with Aspies.

This group is not a substitute for professional treatment for those who are experiencing severe depression or in crisis. If you are suffering from severe depression or are suicidal we urge you to contact the emergency services in your area and contact a qualified physician or psychiatrist immediately.
*** Please also note that we are not a family crisis group and are not experts in this area. If your partner is abusive or threatening, please take appropriate steps to involve the police and family crisis groups in your area.
