Just because I have Tourette doesn’t mean I can’t drive just like you

People sometimes ask, “How can you drive with TS?” My response sometimes is, “Just because I have TS doesn’t mean I can’t drive. When I am consintrated enough on something my tics don’t occur as often.”

Other times I just say, “First, I put the keys in the ignition, then I put the car in drive, and finally I press the gas pedal.” This is usually to my friends and relatives, though, and then they laugh.
