It’s the start of a new year and I’ve decided it’s time to recognise and record something that’s a big part of my life, but something I’ve always tried to ignore up to now. In preparation I’ve bought a voice recorder, and for the next 24hrs I’m going to record every noise I make.
As I’m going to be alone all day you’d be forgiven for thinking this will be pretty boring but I know it won’t be because I have Tourettes Syndrome. This means I make involuntary noises and movements and say things I can’t control – all the time.
Although I don’t know exactly what I’ll say, I can guarantee I’ll say a lot, and some of it will be very funny. Today is also the start of my blog in which I’ll share with readers the constant noise and movement of my life.
From this point on, Tourettes is not my problem but my power. From now on I’m Touretteshero.
