So the other day was my second time at Tae Kwon Do. It was a lot of fun and I learned so much! It is helping my a lot with my OCD. My instructor told me such an inspirational story about a boy who had Tourette’s who went there. He had said that the young boy’s Tourette’s was pretty bad.
They used to do what I guess you would call “exercises,” and he used to have a hard time doing them. He used to just fall to the ground as he ticked. At the beginning, he would not be able to stand still during one of the drills in which they had to — you guessed it — try to stand still for a while.
At first, he wasn’t able stand still for more then a few seconds, but toward the end, he was able to beat everyone and stand still the longest. All the kids in the class would moan and be like, “Awww, he won again!”
I found that story to be so cool and inspirational — that he could overcome his Tourette’s and be able beat everyone in the class was just awesome!
