Having living with my child with tourettes sydrome,hes 10 now and has suffered with the disease for nearly 6 years .People kept saying to us about hes behavier but we knew this wasnt how our son was,with facial tic and abnormal noises ,we were left concerned and worried about what was happening.
2 years later we were sitting at home whatching television and on came a documentary regarding tourette syndrome ,not know what it was we whatched,and as we whatched we saw our little boy coming to us in out minds.THE NEXT DAY WE TOOK OUR QUESTION TO THE DOCTORS AND AFTER 4 WEEKS HE WAS REFERED.(finally we new our son was getting to help he needed and the help we also needed)
Tourettes syndrome is not very highly pressed in england and after spending the last 6 years copeing and learning we want to finally help others .People say that ,people with tourettes syndrome walk about swaering all the time but that is not true as our son dosent but that goes with the different levels of the disease. We beg people ,doctors,specialists and other medical assistants no to be ignorant to our familys that live there lives with such dispare ,the big thing we had to do was to get the school board together and to teach them and convince them that this disease dose exist and that the grass isnt always greener on the other side.
Tourettes syndrome is the lack of dopemein to the brain(plz excuse my spelling)some how it is linked to parkinsons but we are yet to prove it.
i have asked HEALINGWELL.COM if i can open a forum for tourettes to help others to find the help they need ,to give them or their children a normal and happy life.
