"First named storm
@Stealth 83 : "Flee early and flee often" has been my motto for many years. We took refuge in the Texas Hill Country for three weeks after Katrina. But that Hill Country house is long gone.

"DS was diagnosed in 4th grade. Over the years he had a few vocal tics and he generally has some sort of motor tic. @TXtransplant's diet and exercise advice is spot on. At his neurologist's recommendation, we also got him a set of drums that he could beat the hell out of as he went through puberty. A lot of kids will just outgrow it during that time, but some get worse. His needle never really moved one way or the other. He does have sensory issues in that his shirts have to be extra soft and cannot ha..."
