Welcome to MFM, you will find everyone here very friendly and they will help you when they can.
Sorry life is so very tough for you at the moment, I am sorry I cant offer many words of advice as I am lucky to say that I am not in the same boat as you.
I have one son, who is now three, no sign of number two yet! Harry is a cheeky boy who isnt good with food either.
I hope things take a turn for the better for you soon and that hubby is diasgnosed and made better and things with you children also improve soon.

Hi there Emma welcome to MFM
I'm Rach mum to Tom 4(only just) Jc 2,and Evan 6 days!
Sorry to hear your'e struggling at the moment hun,I hope there are ladies who can offer you some support like Angie. Must be very difficult for you with your hubby poorly. I hope he is diagnosed soon,then treatment can be started and I wish you the best with Megs assessment x x
As with the eating problem,a friend of mine has similar issues with both her young boys and advice she was given by health visitors was to let them eat whatever they wanted,as to encourage eating of any kind. Have you spoken with a health visitor or gp? Maybe they could refer you with the boys? Sadly it means you'll see a lot of doctors with everyone but hopefully it will lighten your load.
Lots of friendly ladies on here for a chat x

Sorry you're having a hard time
I have 7 children.My eldest ,now 11,has Aspergers.He was first referred to be assessed when he was four but it took a while to get a diagnosis.As Angie says above it is hard work getting a diagnosis.I 've found the specialist we see very helpful,our biggest problems have been the school,teachers who either refuse to acknowledge or don't know how to deal with your child .In our case it took several serious incidents before they even started the statement process which is what will set out the help your child needs in school.I found http://www.autism.org.uk/ very helpful.I spoke to a lovely lady on the phone and she sent me loads of information including a letter explaining what my son's condition was and the implications of that ,for the school.Whether the kids at school are reacting to your daughter's behaviour or not ,it's still not acceptable that she's bullied.It's the school's responsibility to prevent those situations before they arise,not when it's too late.You' re trusting them with the care of your child.
For that first assessment I actually wrote a long list,I didn't want to forget anything.We have a very nice doctor,he's fantastic with children,he just went through my son's history,right from birth,family history,while my son played.My son did eventually get the right help and he's done really well at school.At 8 I didn't think he'd be able to say in maintream school,at 11 he's now at grammar school and he catches a bus from round the corner and makes his own way there.Children with Aspergers are often very intelligent,partly why they 're such hard work,but they do need the help to make the most of it.
My middle son has been assessed,he has some form of ASD but no label to say what.
The eating thing,all you can do is offer food.Your little one is being seen,I'm sure they'll have lots of good ideas.Sometimes your child helping you make their food helps,but sometimes it's a case of the less they see you worry the more they'll eat just because they want to and not because they 've been told to. I've had feeding issues with some of my children some of the time,my middle son was really difficult for a long time,but if there's just one food you can get them to try ,that's something and you can go from there.
Hope you find some answers for your husband's conditions soon too.It really sounds like you've a lot on your plate now
