Favorite Blogger in Town

I'm so excited. My all time favorite blogger buddy is in town. We are meeting up today, going cycling (I have two of everything, including bikes), and seeing the sites of Seattle. Any guesses as to who is visiting? One hint: I visited her in the summer of 2007 when we testified in her state in a lawsuit. Don & Be, you are my favorite Blogger couple. When ya gonna come to town?

By the way my 14yr old started ADD/ADHD meds. It's been a miracle. He says he feels so much smarter. We think that translates to, he can focus at home and school, and can make good decisions (most of the time). That is a HUGE improvement. This is the ticket. This is his "stay out of jail" card. Not kidding. It's that much of an improvement for him. We also have doubled the mood stabilizing meds for our 10yr old (Aspergers, Tourette's), seeing as his Tourette's outbursts increased substantially last week. Going much better now that the extra meds have kicked in. Always exiting around here...............

why did you wait until age 14 to put him on the meds out of curiosity? he never needed it before the teenage years?

Whoa! I must have missed something. I didn't know your son had Tourette's. What are the real symptoms of that (as I can't hardly imagine it's cussing out loud all the time)?
Glad to hear everything is going well lately.
Have fun biking though Seattle :)

Let's see .... jazz, coffee, cooler weather, Seattle. Sounds like a good destination. A trip out that way is not out of the question, Ms E. This year, we are doing a 'family' type run to see relatives in NC, NJ & MA. Travel with The Empress is a trip unto itself. Thank you Jesus for Benedryl. If you look up 'squirm' in the dictionary, her picture is there.
Keeping fingers crossed for the success of the meds. It's one constant process in finding the right combination and dose, isn't it? Keep on keepin' on - you're doin a good thing.

My daughter is taking ADD meds too-- and it has made a difference. :)
