A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of talking to an American journalist with an incredible name. Lisa Collier Cool writes for Yahoo! Health and her article about me and Tourettes went up yesterday. You can read it here. We spoke for a long time and I think it’s fair to say Lisa was quite nervous to begin with – she’d never spoken to someone with Tourettes before and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. But by the end of the interview she was well into the swing of things and had managed to filter out the ‘Biscuits’ and ‘Hedgehogs’. She asked some very thoughtful questions and she’s come up with a really great article.
