  • Gaining Acceptance

    Depending at what age during one's lifetime the diagnosis for Tourette was made, the support needed to accept the diagnosis may vary.

    If support from the usual support network of family and friends was missing, the need for support is greater in adult situations.

    If during childhood, the person was subjected to ridicule by family, school and acquaintances, the need for support and readjustment is greater.

    Acceptance results in self esteem, self confidence to deal with the world's challenges.

    Acceptance: by family, friends and co workers builds self esteem.

    Self confidence and self esteem will need reinforcement in job seeking and establishing a relationship.

    What challenges have you had to face in gaining acceptance in connection with Tourette Syndrome?

    Dum spiro spero....While I breathe, I hope
