    There are several adults with TS here that post regularly. I am sure you will find them a great source of support.

    Looking forward to getting to know you better.

      Hi Jim,

      Like you I was diagnosed very lte in life as well. You are most certainly not alone and in our age group there are surprisingly a large number of people not diagnosed.

      Has your family and circle of friends been supportive?

      Do you know if there is a local Tourette support organization in your area?

      Glad you found our Forum and we'll be looking forward to learning more about your experiences.

      Feel free to join in any ongoing discussion or start as many of your own as you wish.

      Hope you find the Forum helpful!

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

        Welcome Jim

        There are many adults who participate here who were diagnosed late in life.
        years ago there was such little awareness of TS that it was believed it was a rare disorder so many of our families and our doctors did not know.

        What was your diagnosis as a child?
