So, I was on Facebook recently, scrolling through the list of my friends updates and looking up parks that hubby and oldest son were reading about so we can plan out our camping trip, when Chris, over at Wicked Awesomology, posted a link to his latest post about a road trip he took through our state this weekend. Always up to read something he's written, and get ideas for places in Maine to visit, I clicked over... After reading yet ANOTHER great post from him, I happened to notice on his sidebar, a list of books he was reading and some he had currently read. Ask anyone who knows me, and they'll tell you that in my "abundance" of free time, if I'm not on the computer, I'm probably curled up with my nose in a book (that's how I spent most of Friday and Sunday in fact!), so I clicked through and got hooked!
I spent about 3 hours rating books that I've read (and wow, it didn't
even come close to touching how many I actually HAVE read), and adding
books to my "To-Read" list. This morning I found more, and actually went
onto Amazon and bought a book that I'm now anxiously awaiting the
arrival of. I was so excited to read about this book that I didn't
even cash in my Swagbucks and wait for a gift card to arrive, I actually paid cash!
The book that I ordered is: Against Medical Advice and can also be found under the title Med Head: My Knock-down, Drag-out, Drugged-up Battle with My Brain
- This is a book by James Patterson (one of my favorites!) about 5 year old Cory Friedman waking up with
tics and eventually being diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome and
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, the struggles that go along with finding
the right doctors and treatment and the heartache of his family dealing
I have read one other book called Ryan: A Mother's Story of Her Hyperactive/Tourette Syndrome Child
that was a personal story of a boy living with Tourette's Syndrome, his
was caused by his ADHD medications, it was an amazing book, I'd
recommend it to anyone who is struggling with a family member who has
been diagnosed (or is suspected to have) Tourette's Syndrome.
