I am constantly tormented by it. It's like a worm in my brain.
It's on where I live right now (Friday). Wow! I have only watched the first segment so far and I already feel the adrenaline in my body, I feel so strongly about this.
This is something we always had to deal with, and still do, to some extent because we came to realize that our son has some kind of sensory-seeking tendencies (i.e. Sensory Processing Disorder or something like it). Much DID improve with age, as his ability to have impulse control has improved. But we still wrestle with it a bit here at home. It seems that there isn't a single emotion that he doesn't want to express with his hands or body!   The reason I bring it up...
There's an outbreak among the vaccinated kids?
