I never thought I'd miss the days of raging but I think it's because I knew at some point he'd get so tired he'd have to stop difficult child is struggling right now with his Tourettes. He is struggling between whipping his head forward hard and bending over in half. This is every 2 seconds he is doing one or the other. He is completely exhausted and his neck is sore and he can't stop. He has almost fallen down the stairs and missed the counter top by millimeters. He is discouraged, angry, sad and scared. He's afraid he won't be able to play in his hockey game tomorrow but it's just not safe. He hates his life right now. He is on Concerta for the ADHD, without it he cannot handle school but we are pretty sure it's what's making his tics so bad. The Clonidine to help the tics cannot be taken during the day because it turns him into a zombie. He knows why it's happening and has had to put up with questions from fellow classmates as to why he's doing these things. He is hiding in corners or in bathrooms to release these tics because he is trying so hard to control them in class. I cannot imagine how isolated he must feel. If you could please keep him in your thoughts or say a prayer for him. Our hearts are breaking for him here and I am watching my tough little man become totally deflated on all that he loves because he feels like he's losing it all. He has an appointment with the Neurologist on Friday morning, I hope he has some solutions for difficult child.
