I am 17 years old and live in West Covina, California. I was diagnosed with Tourette at 7 years old. As I grew older, my tics got much worse. I would yell and twitch my arm and move my head. Third grade to 5th grade were my worst years. My tics really acted up, and people would make fun of me for being that one odd or weird kid.
Finally, after teaching my class what Tourette was, people understood it more and things got easier. People didn’t make fun of me anymore and helped me. Now, I’m a junior in high school and my Tourette is very minimal. Most people in school don’t even know I have Tourette because of how mild it is.
I would like to become a blogger because I’ve been through all the teasing and problems a person with Tourette has, and I would like to give others help and advice on their problems with their tics and how to go about their Tourette in school and public.
About a week ago, I found this website and came to see what it is all about. I hope to meet new people and help others that need advice. If you have any questions, feel free to comment or send me a message
