Hi all...I am the mom to a now 17 y.o. son who has a whole host  of neurpsychiatric challenges, ADD,OCD, severe anxiety, depression, IED, strep in the 5th grade brought on severe TIC/Tourettes (PANDAS- Pediatric autoimmune disorder associated with strep) and 3 head traumas, and learning disabilties. Like most of you, I imagine, we live minute by minute on a constant roller coaster. Thankfully he is doing pretty well now. He and I started a business together 2 yrs ago you can read more about that on As a family, as you also know, when one child is sick, it affects the entire family unit. We rely on faith, love and hope !!
