A little about my son: His name is Ricky. He is almost 11. He was born 7 weeks prematurely with a ruptured bowel and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, which we have been dealing with just fine. :)
He has always been delayed with his speech and motor skills. He started being agressive around kindergarten and also has poor social skills. His joints are hyperflexible, which has proven to be a great party trick...
He is in a special day class where he receives help for his learning problems and motor skills issues, and gets speech therapy.
Ricky is also a sweet, wonderful boy. Super talkative and low average intelligence. His diagnoses are bipolar-NOS and PDD-NOS but they have never quite fit perfectly. So it'll be interesting to see how his testing turns out.
Ricky is treated with lithium, seroquel, zyprexa, and tenex for his agression and rages.
The rest of us: I am Becky, 33, and am married to Dave, 34, my boys' stepdad. Ricky's brother is Andrew, 8, and their sister (my daughter with Dave) is Misty, 2 months.
I hope to learn a lot from you all, and hear your thoughts on whether Ricky "sounds" like he has Fragile X. I hope this was not too much of an introduction!
