But what is going on when years later you are still so depressed, forlorn, and fatigued over the loss of your dream? I have heard some define this as “Ongoing Traumatic Relationship Disorder“. I believe the symptoms are very similar to depression, but of a grief that never goes away or unremitting grief.
On June 15, 2013, Asperger Syndrome: Partners and Families of Adults with ASD will be meeting in Portland, Oregon to discuss the topic, “Unremitting Grief.” Sharing stories and giving input from only those who have walked in these shoes can help to bind up the broken hearts of others. Come and join us and share what you know about “unremitting grief.” This will be the last Meetup until September and it will not be one to miss. Click on the link for membership details.
