Please tell me what this indicates... My son, 8, ASD and now depression (have a referral from ped to psych, waiting for a call), ALWAYS has dilated pupils. His old ped in Cali pointed it out one day. I researched it and found that it's not uncommon for kids on the spectrum.
When I was a child I loathed myself. But we had a lot of family drama because my sister was bipolar. I always thought that my self-loathing was guilt because I wasn't perfect. I DO NOT want my child growing up feeling the way i did, though.
He's the sweetest of my four kids - most empathic. My heart breaks for him.View Thread
