Bryce's Neurological Disorder + Specialist

The Late Doctor Archie Silver of The University of South Florida.

Dr. Archie Silver was instrumental in helping my minor child Bryce, to meet his full potential.
 It was in the year of 2003 when my beautiful child
Bryce, was seen by Dr. Silver. Bryce was a patient of another Professor who worked side by side with Archie Silver at USF, Professor Amayla Ramos.

It was here that Bryce received his second diagnosis of the Genetic Brain Disorder known as Tourette Syndrome.{and it's associated disorders/disabilities}

This Professor along with Dr. Silver agreed that Bryce was a favorable candidate for a new medication
named Abilify.  His first diagnosis came from a local Neurologist who preformed a full lengthy Neurological Evaluation. Well documented medical and mental health history.

Abilify was being used and or tested for the treatment of Tourette Syndrome and it's "Comorbidies".  Bryce's response to Abilify was excellent!

The only troublesome side effect was constipation. Which was easily rectified when his long time doctor, approved for an over the counter daily stool softener. This along with a good diet, took care of the
the side effect.

 Many men, women and children are prescribed medications because they are necessary,.   Just like my Bryce.....

Their tailored treatment plans are vital for their quality of life. Some of the ways a caregiver and or patient participate in their own well-being and success, is by having a yearly physical,

keeping all follow-up appointments, schedule therapy as needed and being on time with Doctor ordered lab test. Make notes of items you want to discuss with your doctor.
Compliance is necessary.........

------------------------------------------- NOTE:  There's MORE to TS & ADHD than just the tics and or hyperactivity.

When I read an article that is mainly "all about the tics"  I ask
myself, why is this person adding to the misinformation about Tourette Syndrome "PLUS"?

What about the combination of conditions and how they can change, otherwise Known as new and emerging disorders. Such as Bipolar in boys during puberty.  just like my Bryce......

Both ADHD and Tourette Syndrome are widely believed to be Genetic Brain Disorders. 

Personally, I think there is something in the vaccinations. And if there is, then this would be a cause of these disorders and diseases get passed on to our children...

There are medical professionals that claim Tourette Syndrome is an associated condition of ADHD, while other professionals claim that ADHD is the associated condition of Tourette syndrome.

What is agreed upon is this...when on a tailored treatment plan those of us who suffer from these disorders can lead productive and successful lives.    just like my Bryce.....

I raised Bryce until January 2007. I have lived in Tampa since January 1996. In 1998 Bryce's father left us for a young woman named Patricia Rerisi. They eventually married and later divorced. I divorced him in April 1999 and moved into a two bedroom apartment, my maiden name was restored. Two years later I was now on Section 8 and needed donations. I have remained single by choice.

Sometime in 2006 my former husband told me he could give our son more than I could and that he
would. I wanted our child to have more. I didn't know that David had been enticing Bryce when they spoke on the phone.

More and more our son wanted to go and spend some years living with his father. David told Bryce about his 3 large plasma TVs, we didn't have one. His father also told him there was a dog named Chip waiting for him in the back yard.

A two parent family, two incomes, a big house on a culdesac with lots of
material stuff inside. A gated community and more...

His father David Vandergrift and his then step mother Patricia Vandergrift were well aware of our child's disabilities, and all that was in place for our son to continued succeeding.

In February 2009 Patricia filed for divorce, it was finalized in June 2009. case-2009-CI-02457-
45th Judicial District Court, Bexar County, San Antonio Texas. {06/29/2009 VOL

In the criminal case against Bryce, court personnel write that I left Bryce in Texas and moved back to Florida. No, they were talking about the step mother, fabricating we are the same person. More lies. I never left our child, I am guilty of wanting Bryce to have MORE.

Nick and Bryce's houses were in walking distance.  Bryce met the victims wife and her oldest son Nicholas in May 2009. At this time she was a Speech Pathologist for children with special needs.    just like my Bryce.....

I have documents from Texas that show mr. Vandergrift gave his then wife, patricia vandergrift, and that she was also systematically removing bryce's medications and  his safeguards, in place for his special needs, learning disabilities.
