Hi! I never thought about participating on the blog before, but ran across it today and thought that it sounded like a good idea. As a parent of a 17-year-old boy with Tourette Syndrome, my experiences over the years might serve to help parents deal with a new diagnosis. We have been through much, but survived. Our son is doing well now.
Over the years, the New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome has offered a lifeline to many. We have taken advantage of the wonderful family retreat weekends at Camp Bernie and found that networking with other parents there has proved a valuable resource. We found our son’s doctor through another parent at camp.
Thank you for providing a forum through which parents can connect and be comforted. I will look forward to participating.
