OK Serious Time

imageWhen I was 10 years old, I started having weird movements like shrugging my shoulders, rolling my eyes, bending my fingers and wrists, clearing my throat, etc. It came to a point where my body was feeling really tired and sore.

In March 2011, my mom took me to the doctor, and he revealed that I was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome. For those who may not know what Tourette's is: it's a neurological disorder that is characterized by involuntary movements and sounds called tics.

Finding that out not only explained the current issues I was having, but it also explained the issues I had in my past that's usually associated with Tourette's like my learning disabilities that almost got me held back in kindergarten, not being able to talk until I was 4, sensory integration disorder with my touch and hearing senses, lack of social skills, etc.

As I got older, my symptoms started improving, but I was still having problems until I was probably a freshman in high school. And this was also a reason for why I was bullied really bad all throughout my childhood.

This disorder was a huge factor in what made my childhood really difficult, but I look at it as a source of my strength that I have today. Even though I will occasionally have some motor tics when I'm under stress, they are mild. But this is why I always stand up for what I believe in and why I love and accept everyone. I went through so much, and I thank God everyday that I was able to recover. Now look where I am today, I just finished my first year of college at a really difficult school which is just one step closer to becoming the successful woman I want to be.

Starting today until June 15th is National Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month. As someone who lives with Tourette's, I am taking this time to embrace what is a part of my life. And if any of you have anyone that you know of that has Tourette syndrome or any disorder, PLEASE give them so much love and support because you being there for them really means a lot.

Thank you to all my friends that are always here for me!!! You guys make me feel so welcome on this site, and I am soo lucky to have you. I love you all!!! <3

And my all my other peeps on this site!!! <3

Love you Grace and really appreciate you taking your time to share your experiences, but more importantly, helping to educate myself and other members of Tengaged about your condition and the possible effects and way it affected you. This is very eye-opening and definitely shows your true strength ❤️
