Any of you have teens who are talking about the semicolon project today? Evidently we should all be checking our children's wrists.  < https://m.facebook.com/pages/The-Semicolon-Project/659615364052145?id=659615364052145&_rdr>

Here's to hoping that all of the semicolon kids were heard and are on their way to help and healing.

Are you asking me, or are you asking someone else if she is here just to insult me?

I'm reasonably assured that isn't how mental illness starts at all.  However that *can* be (but isn't always) one way that mental illness can be DIAGNOSED.  

You might want to brush up on your medical degree.  And your English.

Please don't associate her offensive behavior with people who suffer from Tourettes.  THEY cannot help it.  Molly can but chooses to be this horrible.

Not my teens but I have heard about it in a wider circle.  I think it's a good think, there can never be too much awarness for this type of situation.

You might want to note that the heading for this section is off-topic discussion and if you are advocating or supporting other groups that talk about this sort of thing, why wouldn't you understand talking about it among parents as well?
