The Sacramento Zoo

Being a Person with Tourettes can be so difficult and challenging.  For a child, it can be even more difficult. Sometimes it is extremely hard for the child to translate to adults what is happening to them and they cannot control the tics that occur. Many seek every solution in controlling the tics but most often, even after Tourettes is diagnosed, a solution is often not found.  I have read that some visit doctor after doctor and trying tons of medication…

Family relationships. Brothers and Sisters

What is the place in this large, dangerous and hostile world where we can hide from all problems, find support and understanding? For the majority of people it is home. Who can help us in every situation, give advice, and just love us as we are? They are our mothers, fathers and, of course, brothers and sisters.
