Jack Mangan: Me and my Tourettes

Jack is 8 years old and has had Tourette's for over a year.  He has been hiding his tics as best he can. After developing a swearing tic he decided that he wanted to make a video to help people understand him, his Tourettes and how it affects him. 

This is a big deal for Jack as he is really quite shy and struggles with self esteem and embarrassment

Towards the end of the video (app.10 minutes) there is a warning to notify you of some swearing.  

"People need to know that TS is involuntary. We don't need pity, but some will always need help, support and understanding"
