Hello, my name is Helen, and I am married and have four sons. Our first son was diagnosed with TS at the age of 9. No one in our family has TS that we know of. We were lucky enough to only have one son with TS. We were told 50/50 one of our other sons would have it.
Anyway, my son Billy is now 29 years old. From nine years old till about 16, Billy was on meds. He decided in high school he didn’t want to take meds cause they made him tired. Billy, at the same time, started experiencing with marijuana and alcohol. Billy graduated from HS and got into the school of engineering at Rutgers University after making quite a number of outstanding schools.
Freshman year went fine. Sophmore year Billy decided to join the engineering fraternity. His graes declined and he was put on academic probation. At that time he started dating a girl named Kat. She was a grade ahead of him and studying psychology. Their relationship ended after three years because of Billy’s temper and drinking.
Billy then graduated and moved into the city for five years. He had another girlfriend Tara that last almost three years with lots of fighting and drinking. Billy has anger issues. That relationship ended. Billy decided he wanted out of the city and to buy a house. He moved into a houser closer to me and my husband.
Billy had some problems with the house but also started dating a new girl named Gabby. That lasted a few months when she broke it off because of Billy’s anger issues. Billy came over for dinner Wednesday night and admitted he was depressed and ruined three relationships because of his anger issues. He realizes he needs to see a TS doctor. He is in the process of finding one.
