To the OP, good luck finding the supports that your child needs.
I agree with this, it's perfectly okay to express your own feelings, but it is offensive to confer those feelings on to everyone with asperger's or everyone who has a kid with asperger's. I know for a fact that my mother doesn't see me as a "nightmare" or a "victim" of an "ugly condition" and I don't see my life that way either. It is offensive, and beyond that, it's hurtful. Expressing your feelings is completely different than that.

It doesn't matter how you label it, OP, as long as your kid gets what they need, but make sure to talk to your kid about it. I hope you get the answers you need.
