I wish more people would take the time to spread pictures of awareness for Tourette. People don’t understand how ridiculed we are. Did you know more kids commit suicide that have Tourette than those who are gay? Probably not, because you never hear about that.
I believe love is love and think everyone should have rights, but I also have strong feelings of my own seeing so many friends posting these equal signs knowing that more than half of them wouldn’t do the same for TS. Not that its something to fight over, I just wish we had more love and acceptance than hatred and ignorance.
You don’t know until it’s you… I’ve had multiple people go in public with me and afterward say, “Wow, I had no idea people were so rude.”
