    Late to the party here:
    But as a person with Autism, and sensory issues the you eat, what we eat thing ought to him limits. Now granted I do not have kids, but maybe someday if the Gods are kind. Anyway some of my worst memories growing up have to do with food. Pasta is generally nasty and fish usually smells so strong it makes me nauseous, and gets my synesthesia going real bad. But when i would tell the adults including parents about it. they'd accuse me of lying and insist i eat what was in front me. Which didn't lay a foundation of trust.
    I don't know how you'd craft a food is a safe space sort of policy while still getting the kid to eat healthy

    Don't be afraid. I recently found out I have Autism at 33. I would encourage you to read up on the Neurodiversity model as it can be far more life affirming then the usual DSM gloom and doom....

    So Disclaimer Time:
    I have bipolar so my experience with SSRIs is not typical. For me they provoked a manic episode within two weeks of starting. That was mistaken for schizophrenia, and a whole six year mess ensued trying to get the right diagnosis. So from a certain point of view they worked great. 😛Just watch yourself carefully over the next few weeks because if you have bipolar it'll send you on a rocket ride to god only knows where.
    That said I want to amplify a point that others have made in this thread and that is Pills Don't Teach Skills. In other words start talk therapy, you'll need it. Even with good meds in the right dose there will be days when it won't seem to work. On those days you'll need the skills to analyze your own thoughts and deterimine what is distorted, what is entirely false, and what is really you.
    As to your question all the medicine does is correct the flawed biochemical process only you can determine what's really you
