ilovedogs Posted December 19, 2011 Report Share Posted December 19, 2011 So, I thought I'd ask about this here. My ds is an only child, he has lots of friends because he's involved in competitive sports and homeschool groups, etc but he does spend a lot of time alone and with us. I also talk to myself but I keep my voice low and whisper. I have had episodes where I talk to myself and people catch me doing it in stores, etc and then I'm totally aware of it but really wasn't aware I was doing it at the time. Once ds was born, I used to talk to him incessantly even when he was a baby. I'd tell him everything on my mind. Anyway, my husband is concerned and thinks it's weird but I think ds is just like me and that he'll have to learn how to curb the talking when he's in public or around other people, etc. Also, a quick update on us for those of you who remember us. Ds is now 13 and still has tics but they aren't too bad most of the time. His real problem is anxiety and stress related issues like stomach problems from anxiety, etc. I am planning on really focusing this year on treating his allergies and nasal congestion. I want to possibly go wheat free for a while and see if he improves with that. He has a lot of food sensitivities but he fights me on taking supplements so I feel I have to take baby steps with him. He also hates swallowing pills. I thought the allergies would get better once we moved(we moved into a single story home with 100% hard wood flooring) and that his allergies would get better but they haven't. He's had 3 colds since August and they all have heavy nasal congestion so I'm planning on some environmental allergy testing and we'll see what we find out. Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!! Bonnie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
