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.

  • Inspiring teacher with TS

    My name is Natalie Pearson, I have Tourette Syndrome. I shout, I swear, I make rude gestures, I sing, I repeat, I move my body, I sometimes hit myself….the list goes on, BUT, I’m a teacher. YES! A TEACHER!. I’m the only teacher in the world with Coprolalia. I would like to tell you all that it’s been an easy ride to get to the position I am in, but I would be lying. Let me tell you a little about my journey.
