    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forum. I do not have autism myself, but my son does. He just turned fifteen, and we are going through a really rough patch of years with him. I'm desperately trying to find a place where I can ask for some advice with regards to his obsessions/addictions and related aggressions.

    Is it okay to post about it here as someone without autism? And if so, is there a particular forum that would be best for me to do so?

    Thanks so much!

    Aye, it's totally fine to do that. It's pretty common in this place.

    I'd say, just post it in the general autism discussion section or whatever that's called.

    Post away and we'll give you our best thoughts.

    What are his obsessions/addictions and related aggressions?

    Hi and welcome, I hope that you enjoy it here and can get some helpful ideas for issueswith your son. He's at a tricky age, where he may want more independence yet be frustrated by the difficulties he experiences. Then it's tough for you too. I hope you find it supportive here.

    Thank you all so much. We have felt so alone. I’m going to create a post under general autism. I’m unable to use a computer when he is around so will either post in sections on my phone or post this evening.

    Seriously, thank you for the warm welcome.
