  1. I was born with a form of Autism called Asperger’s. And I used to stay up late frequently when I was 7 and 8 years old. Especially when I felt hyperactive. So it makes sense. Thank You Dr Breus.

  2. Some of them have no problem giving their kids a dangerous Covid shot…I’m sure they think this is great.
