My annual Tourette message = a big success!

Sent my annual message to my RA (the student who is technically in charge of our floor in the dorms) letting her know about my TS. I do this every year. My tics have never caused a problem in the dorms, but I still tell my RA each year just to make sure she is aware of it on the front end.

I have no idea if there would have been problems or not if I had not told my RA each year about my TS, but I really prefer to be safe about it rather than putting myself in a difficult or uncomfortable situation (which has happened a few times when a professor/teacher/or other person i’m around hasn’t been told about my TS).

Anyway, my RA responded to my e-mail, and like all of my RA’s in the past, she sounds amazing and accepting. Here was her response:

Thank you so much for getting back to me! I had a friend in high school who also had Tourette’s, so I am familiar with it, but there are definitely more things I can learn from you! Looking forward to meeting you soon!

It always makes me so happy when someone I’m trying to educate ends up already having known someone with TS!
