    The truth about Tourette

    Janet:

    I have found that most people around me think you must have this part of the disorder to actually have TS.

    When you explain TS does not center around saying inappropriate words they seem shocked. :shock:

      The truth about Tourette

      It is true that the media sensationalizes this symptom as the defining symptom of TS. People like Norton excite me when they take the initiative to step up and tell their story so the public can see the truth.

        The truth about Tourette

        There is no doubt that the media and the entertainment industry sensationalize Tourette Syndrome as the "swearing disease".

        Any search on the internet for news articles on Tourette Syndrome prove your point.

        Perhaps we should maintain a list of the 10 worst examples of media portrayal of Tourette Syndrome :roll:

          All jokes aside, that would be a great little project. WOW, where would we start?

          I would love to challenge some of the BB members to get that going.

            I'd start with Niagra, Niagra. Anyone watching THAT would think we're all unpredictable, violent, potential murderers!
