TS is real. Kids be f'ed these days.

Along with ADHD, ASD, Bipolar, Aspergers, Autism, PDD... etc...

There is a mental health plague on the modern world hidden in plain sight.

The children keep getting sicker and sicker. I see it everyday in the day-life I live...

If you've got it, then it's not a bunch of hooey. I know people who do have it, and it's no laughing matter. You probably should do some personal research on it first, before making a generalised and ignorant thread.

 Quoting: Cynical Realist



I have worked with children with this disorder. I can tell you they are not faking.

I have also worked with many adults with the disorder whom are not faking.

I also have known a few people who have made a living off of faking it (usually cousins or parents amazingly trying to get some attention and money from the gov).

I also suggest doing some personal research to try and clear some of the ignorance from your train of thought.

It may not change your mind, but you will be able to criticize with a bit more clarity.

Nope.... Tourettes is a spectrum disorder, but are not related to ocd or asperger`s.

However people who suffer from tourettes can often have ADHD also.

Its not just swearing (actually thats a very rare form of it). Its mostly ticks and movements (that can be very dangerous to oneself)....not to mention exhausting.

Picture being a puppet on string and having someone forcing you to move yourself around to the point of exhaustion from day until night.

Even things like constant twisting of the neck, leading to sever neck and back injury/pain. As well as constant banging of the hands/knuckles, elbows to a point where one can have permanet nerve damage.


Not so funny like in TVland huh?

Fortunately, the majority but not all of TS sufferers have a remittance of symptoms by adulthood, however, that does not mean they return to a normal developmental trajectory.

In short, having TS or any disorder fucking blows for the individual and their family.

Ive suffered with it for 35 years and counting and its just as bad now than ever. Ive been a husband and hard working father of four children and at only 39 years old I have the chronic pains of an 80 year old. I guess I wasnt one of the lucky "majority".
