It's That Time Again

It's that time of the year again.  Today officially marks the start of Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, which runs from May 15 to June 15.  In the days to come, I will once again be sharing facts about Tourette Syndrome.  Please feel free to share my posts to help spread awareness of what TS really is.

To start us off for the month, here is the first fact:  Tourette Syndrome is not a swearing disease, as media often portrays it to be. It is a neurological disorder characterized by motor and vocal tics.  Coprolalia (the swearing often associated with TS) occurs in only about 10% of those with Tourette Syndrome.
