I have FX

I'm a 39 yr old male who has Fragile X. All my male cousins have the kind that causes severe retardation. I guess I got lucky.

In my adult life I've felt like a kid most of the time. I guess that's why my wife and I are separated? She wants a divorce :( She said that it feels like living with a ten year old. I thought that perhaps I have some form of autism; but after doing some research; I'm pretty sure that autism "comes with" FX. Does severe depression come with it? I haven't found many case studies that determines whether a FX Adult can live a functional life. I sure feel dysfunctional. Again, my 8 year marriage is over. It saddens me. My therapist thinks I'm disabled (duh!).

I'm a freelance artist. My site is :) I've heard that autistic people are really good at art.

I also have Dandy Walker Syndrome; which is a whole other story.

Sometimes I wonder if my life is worth it.

I'm glad to have found this community. I hope it stays active.
