For those of you that are new here because maybe it’s 2am and you googled “Oh my God my kid is making this duck quack sound/I am freaking out/please help me figure out how to make it stop” you have found the right place.
I can’t promise you this site will cure tics. But it will do this: it will give you peace of mind, because I will share what I learned going from despair to hope.
My son was diagnosed at 5. I freaked out, got on meds, almost got a divorce over the stress, got sober and wrote a book. (Fun times!) I’m now off meds, a mindfulness freak, sober for 4 years and happily married. (To the same man! A miracle!) Plus “Stink” is now 17 and six foot six. He’s not only thriving, he’s helping me write Book #2 – Happily Ticked Off, Again. (Coming 2021)
Moms and Dads, welcome home. Check out my blog and sign up to not miss a single post.
I’m so glad to get Happily Ticked Off with you!
Andrea (and Dom!)
