As someone who suffers from a neurological condition that causes uncontrollable muscle spasms I really feel for these young women. I didn't find out what my condition was for almost 10 years and had many people, even employers turn on me. When you tell someone you are having a very bad day and they say I had a headache they don't understand. I really hope that they find something, anything that is causing the tics and seizures an they can be stopped or lessened and the pain will stop(chronic pain is no fun believe me)

The extreme addictions was yet again another TLC reality show - they should just change the talk show's title to Anderson presents TLC reality TV. And did you see another episode next week with Toddlers and Tiaras and the go go juice addict is going to be on. I give up.

Apparently the talk show is nothing but PR for various TLC shows. Are they not capable of talking about anything else. AC also seems to have an unhealthy obsession with Toddlers and Tiaras.

This was one of the more interesting shows Anderson has done in a while, then they had to ruin it by bringing in My Strange Addiction. Although I did get a chuckle out of the creepy dude who REALLY loves his car!

But seriously, maybe AC is addicted to TLC?

Ok, if Leroy, NY was so concerned about the"FEAR" and the stores in the town's livelihood in jeopardy, you think they would be doing EVERTHING they could to have EVERYTHING tested so they can fix it. But instead, LETS JUST STICK OUR HEAD IN THE SAND AND MAYBE IT WILL GO AWAY!!!
