Assuming most have heard about the Tampa mom "Army wife" who just killed her teen-aged children for being 'mouthy', its become apparent that she has alcohol and drug problems. I'm curious as to how you guys would describe the moms symptoms/visual description in the video of her being escorted by authorities? Like how would you chart that if you had to describe it? The first word that came to mind for me was ataxia? But I do not specialize in this area and wondered from those who do work in this area. They also mentioned when she had the car accident a couple months ago and seemed 'drug impaired' and that she had 'mush-mouthed' speech. It was stated she left the ER before they could drug screen her. People are harshly judging her but looking at that video alone one can see she is not medically, physically or mentally right!!! There is ALOT wrong there.
