    Default In the middle of a 3 year rage storm

    Or at least that's what it feels like. My boy is 13 and puberty and Tourettes plus is not a good mix. Throw into the mix that dad is undx'd Tourettes(adhd was DX'd) and you can understand the constant storm I am living in. I try so hard to find just the tiniest piece of dry land to rest on but unfortunately there seldom seems to be a break.... before puberty, my son had moments. He could be sweet and kind and very endearing. Now he's always mean and very much a bully and at 13, thanks to OCD, very much addicted to internet porn...

    I am so very sorry for what you are going through, I have a 9 year old who was recently diagnosed and he also has rages. He has his moments of sweetness as well in between the rages. We have found a decent mix of meds that seem to help him. I don't know what meds your son is on but perhaps they need to be reassessed, or he needs to be given a PRN to help with the moments of rage. I certainly cannot see that he could possibly be happy doing these things and I certainly hope you can get him the help he needs. If you live in Southern Ontario please contact the tourette's clinic in Sick Kids Hospital. We are getting my son seen there, hopefully not too much of a wait list after they get the paperwork.... Are you near any Children's Mental Health places such as Pathstones? They have a crisis line you can call and the more you call the sooner you are to get help. We at one time with my son had to call 911 and because of that FACS had gotten involved and it was the best thing that happened as they were able to open doors to help that we could not do ourselves. Remember how important it is to take care of the caregiver.... there are so many options for your son, if it means needing to find the extra funds there are many places to go. ACSD (assistance for children with severe disabilities) is one and we have just been approved for the Disability Tax Credit from Revenue Canada. They will pay back at least 4 years when approved and it helps with the costs involved in getting help for your son. My heart goes out to you....
