Much easier for me to type it and sometimes I don't really get annoyed actually. What do you think about people with tourettes though?

I don't think of anything. I guess I'm a saint in that aspect.

I don't judge someone until I've got to know them.

Not entirely sure what you mean by think about people with it. I grew up with someone with it, most people didn't even know she had it, they just thought she was super worried about her hair all the time, but her biggest thing was she would constantly put her hand through her hair, sometimes multiple times in a row, or interrupt it to do it again, which is the only time it seemed odd. Otherwise you would just think she was really worried about it being not straight. However she also would sometimes blink or flinch, or force a cough, but she was able to keep the coughs silent for the most part.

So I guess in short I don't think much about it, it's just another of the billion things that exist to keep us all unique.

i feel sad because i know other will judge really harshly and then i mess that up by realizing they are prob tired of ppl feeling sad for them so i tend to over compensate by being a complete ass to them then feel bad and turn into an angel and then get fustrated and walk away...... yea

For me meeting people with Tourettes make me feel comfortable actually, but when I'm around people It makes me feel uncomfortable that I might be making them feel uncomfortable.

Not sure how it would make anybody feel uncomfortable that someone else has it.
Honestly I find it more strange that it would make somebody uncomfortable to be around it than the tourettes itself. If it doesn't impact someone or harm them, I do not see why they have grounds to judge it.
Be happy with who you are, even if others aren't around -nod-

I am very happy with myself thank you and the only way of feeling comfortable is to Isolate myself in my room and Watch CrunchRoll.

Well, you seem like a good person. -nod-
I don't think many people would judge you, unless they're complete asses, in which case their judgement should mean nothing anyways.

I am a Good Person! :D
Only that I haven't completely Isolated myself from life "Yet" that's why I wanna meet people with Tourettes or hang out with people that watch CrunchyRoll!
So I can get out this room and have some fun... It's so lonely in here.

Awh. If you have any anime stores near you, see if they host events. The one near me does and it's where I've made several friends.

Well I never been to a Anime Store since I started looking at Anime but there's is a store in L.A around 20 minutes from where I live.... Stores actually have events like that? If I knew I would been going to a few of them. D:

Tourette, when people shout verbal nonsense? Someone did that to me not too long ago.

I don't think anything in particular. I see a person with TS in the same way most people would view someone with allergies. I don't really care, though I would naturally be a bit distracted by the symptoms when they occur; however, I'd be no more distracted by someone yawning, sneezing, coughing, burping, or whatnot.
