difficult child has been having so many tics lately. He used to do one or two things (mainly coughing), but for the past two weeks he is constantly ticing. He is sniffing his nose and moving his jaw up and down. It doesn't seem to stop. He is also opening and closing his fingers. I feel so badly for him and my mommy heart hurts, because I am afraid of what will happen if his tics worsen and this really becomes a problem. He is not emotionally ready to handle kids making comments or asking questions. He is just learning to deal with losing games and not getting his way without major frustration. The more he tics, the more he gets agiated, which means frustration UUUGGGHHHH The one thing that makes his crazy is when he thinks people are looking at him and talking about him. He doesn't want to stand out at all...and this is all before the noticeable tics. I can't believe the kids have not yet brought it up...but its coming. The p-doctor said we could increase the abilify as this can decrease the tics. We've done this for about 5 days and no improvements have been seen.
