Don’t let Tourette cause you to not take pride in who you are!

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!




  1. I was also bullied in school people would say “Awh you don’t have Tourette’s you don’t swear and I never see you do anything” it’s not all about swearing and it made me feel so belittled it was horrible and then you’d get people who would imitate you

    • You are who you are at the end of the day and no one should get in the way of that i don’t know who I would be without tourettes
