Hi, first a little backstory (sorry if this is long and rambling). I've spent years trying to get a diagnosis for my son, every school, senco and a private paediatrician have said he's got Asd (aspergers), chronic insomnia and depression, but we're getting no help (largely because he's academically well above average and mostly towing the line at school). My GP says they can only refers to cahms, which happened 2 years ago. After losing paperwork many times and generally Procrastinating, our cahms officer agrees he is on the spectrum and is almost ready to discuss him at a review after which we will have a 1 year waiting time. Meanwhile my son self harms, says no one understands him and he doesn't want to live anymore- he also gets in violent rages with me and pulls up the hand break, throws doors open etc when I'm driving. I'm so worried about him and every appointment gives him sympathy but no help. We've paid out about 1500 on private appointments and therapists and still no real help. Has anyone got any advice. I feel like emotionally I'm loosing him.
