  1. Smartyjones-- We're live in suburbia, too. (My DS is a high school senior, undiagnosed and refusing all treatment, but his pediatrician and the other specialists we, his parents, have talked with all say that his symptoms are a dead ringer for OCD and very possibly PANDAS.) I hear you about suburbia. My son's high school is huge and full of high-achieving students; it is a diploma mill, really, and the counselling staff has been friendly but not responsive to my son's situation-- they are too busy writing letters of recommendation for all the high acheivers who are applying to very fanc

He has just turned 17 and for about 10 months has been displaying some dramatic behaviors that are very similar to those described in "Saving Sammy." My husband and I have been trying to work with our son's school counselors and teachers, but because he can cover up his symptoms at school, they think that nothing is wrong with him save, perhaps, for a case of ADHD, which they think accounts for the sudden, complete decline in his sch
