Hi momlcc.  My son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes Jan 2008.  About 3 weeks ago was put on medicine for tourettes.  Things where just so bad at this time that medicine is the best thing for him now.  I hope someday he will be able to not ever take medicine.  I'm learning more and more about tourettes.  The vocal tics are getting worse:( I live in a small town so no one here knows anything or no support.  I have to go in the other room just so my son don't see me break down and cry.  All I want is to take the pain away from him.  I would love to chat more and talk about our sons.  God bless you and your family.  hope to hear from you.:)
