Don't worry TC. I've never met anyone with Turret's Syndrome, but if I do, I'll make sure to be extra careful.

Just kidding. I joke, I joke!! But in all seriousness, I think of people with Tourette's the same way I think of people with Down's Syndrome, of which I do know a few people. I myself was born with Asberger's which is hard as hell to control. I think of them as just any other ordinary human beings, and am generally anything but mean. If anything, I have sympathy for those types of people.

It's hard to make fun of people with Tourette's or any other diagnosis, illness, or life problem. Because if I do it to them, they have just as much a right to do it to me. And I'm just not able to make fun of people. You go dude!! I view them as models, people I can look up to. They have life challenges, albeit different than mine, but regardless they still struggle more than the average human beings, and I respect the willpower and courage that takes. I look up to guys like you. Keep living life, man!

MikeyMike, you sick bastard. I posted my comment a minute later than yours, and your face pops up when I scroll up. Dammmmmmnnniiiiiittt!!!!!! Why is that picture so popular?!!!


We should hang out sometimes! So you can meet a real life TS dude! >:D I'm pretty fun to get along actually.
Lol.


...I'm in Louisana. On the upside, I do plan on moving to Cali for a college choice. If I go through with it, I'll be in USC for a four year in video game design and programming. Dunno if you looked at my location, but Santa Destroy is a location in Suda 51's No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2. I definitely recommend it to anyone thinking the Wii is a kid's console. That and MadWorld with shatter that mindset completely.

Online chat would be perfectly fine though, if that's okay with you.


Online chat sounds great! Also do you have any type of Social Network where we can chat? Like Skype Ect?


I have skype. Dunno if it's free. If it is, good. I also have Facebook Chat.



Skype has always been free actually. Let's chat on skype my name is on my Profile for skype add me!


I'll set up an official profile then. I'll get back at you when I'm all set up. Went to sleep at seven last night because of a bad day, and just woke up, so that's why my response is this much later. Also, if you could wait a few days. I'm currently typing o the family computer, but I just had one custom-made, which I'll have to go get Saturday or Sunday. Then I'll transfer all my stuff from the family computer and my laptop to it, and we'll be good to go.

My brother has Tourette Syndrome and Asperger's Syndrome. My bro's smart and I get pissed when people mock him for his tourettes or being "slow" because of his aspergers. I get along with him better than anyone, so


Well take good care of your brother because me in High School was Bully and made fun of because of my TS. I didn't really care much though that's the good thing, just make sure he is treated with respect in school.

I would like to know what everybody have to say from their point of view think about people with TS.

Shit happens. I sat next to a guy with TS for the entire length of Shakespeare's Julius Ceasar (possibly his most boring work) when I was 13. It was kind of like trying to have quiet time while sharing a room with a Dutchman (they make random "happy noises" to show that they enjoy your company), but may have been the only thing keeping me awake through the second half.

Seriously though, I think it's neurologically related to anxiety disorders and OCD, and socially similar to cerebral palsy. Caricatures of CP and TS are funny on TV, but in real life people struggle. It's not their fault, and there's not really anything they can do about it. Tics and spasms have no bearing whatsoever on personality or mental ability.

I'm gay, which is another thing that is also funny on TV and a struggle in real life. A lot of people hate me for the sole reason that they are wankers who were raised wrong. People with TS have better legal protections for their civil rights than I do, but we have better parades and more celebrity supporters. You may not have considered this, but most people have something abnormal about them. Even when they can blend into a crowd, they may feel very alienated from the people around them. TS is a quirk that is hard to hide, but that doesn't mean that it's in a league of it's own. Just practice some George Carlin stand-up classics watch a lot of hockey - you'll feel normal in no time.

I don't think anything.. People shouldn't be judged no matter what, but especially if it's something they can't control.

I've never seen one in real life, I would try to ignore them and act normal around them. I wouldn't want people around them to feel embarassed

What's to think about it? They're people too, so I don't mind them at all- just because they have a syndrome doesn't mean I have to be biased about them.

I think they're fine, although I've never met one (at least, not one self-proclaimed that is).

I've met a few people with TS. I liked them just fine, and we're all close friends.
