What is Tourette Syndrome (TS)? It is a neurobiological disorder characterized by tics–involuntary, rapid, sudden movements and/or vocal outbursts that occur repeatedly.

Tourettes .. I have figured out what mine is. It is the same as my mother. I can't not talk. Yes double negative and all.

Basically my entire family has A.D.D. and tourettes. I know I have A.D.D. if not A.D.H.D. and it was a matter of time before I deemed something my tourette. And I have figured it out as I said. My involuntary sudden vocal outburst is in the form of not being able to talk. I shout answers at strangers in grocery lines, restaurants, basically anywhere a conversation goes on. In realizing this it has made my participation in classes awkward. I want to ask questions but is it because I feel like I have to participate or is it just a way for me to segway into telling a story. I never used to be like this. I am starting to consider duct take.

EDIT: perhaps this is all a function of facebook society with the need to comment on everything. Perhaps it is time to quit facebook again.

At least you have something to work with? Knowing is half the battle? For me it always helps to have a place to start...Like Dori from Nemo says...Just keep swimming :)
