I’ve had Tourette Syndrome since I was nearly 2 or 3, and I got TS because I had meningitis, from which I later got paralyzed. The doctors told me I would never walk again, but my mum wasn’t about to give up, so she eventually got me walking again. But I developed TS because something never healed in me, and I also have trouble feeling hotness and coldness in my finger tips.
I also have OCD. At school, people look at me like I’m a normal girl, but if I told them I had TS, they would start saying I didn’t, start calling me a liar and start bullying me because of it. At school, I can calm my Tourette down, and it rarley happens at school, but it’s a lot worse when I get home because I had to hold it in even thought I know I shouldn’t.
At the end of the day, if you have Tourette you should be proud of it because it makes you unique!
