The Tourettes Action Blog

The Tourettes Action blog gives people with Tourette Syndrome (TS) a space to talk about how the condition affects them. We hope that by explaining what life is really like to have or to live with someone who has TS, we can fight the stigma about the condition.

If you would like to write about your experiences of TS, we would love to hear from you. Please email us to find out more and discuss what you might like to write about.

  • Sophie and Bob

    Hi there, my name is Sophie. I was diagnosed with Tourette's aged 8 and I am 10 years old now, I am from Glasgow. My mum (Dawn) calls me squishy, this is because I always have at least two squishes with me at school to help me try and make my big tics into smaller ones. I find them relaxing to look at and I love the feeling I get when I can squeeze them with all my might.
