Not sure if we should be laughing or crying while watching this.

well, my granddaughter, silja's eldest, has tourette's, but she's not as bad and she can control it for brief periods of time. she doesn't have a sense of humour about it though and hers is controlled by meds from what i gather, haven't talked about it with her in many moons.

come to think of it nik is an odd duck altogether. like her mom. :razz:

Laughter is the best medicine, so they way. I think the gal in the video has the right idea, but I also suspect she goes through a lot of misery off camera.

Kids are experts at brutal honesty. It stops being cute once they turn into adults.

saxon was trying to be nice the other day and suggested didn't do something (can't remember what) so i'd live longer,as i don't have that many years left any more.

LOL - brutal honesty isn't the same as being tactful. I think Saxon's heart is in the right place though.
