Tourettes syndrome is not as rare as originally thought, as many surveys show that around one to eleven children out of every thousand have tourette’s. Although tourette’s is lot more talked about now then ever before there is still a lot of confusion surrounding this disorder. Let alone sufferers or parents of sufferers, even professionals are still trying to make sense of this often misunderstood disorder. I have lived with this disorder for over twenty five years which started when I was just six years old.

During my late teens I went to see my doctor about my problem who simply said that it was nothing to worry about and that it would soon pass. Well it didn’t. Eventually he got me to see a couple of specialists in this field. Although these therapists tried, they couldn’t cure my problems. I also tried alternative therapies such as acupuncture and homeopathy, but unfortunately none of them helped.

That’s when I started spending hours almost everyday trying to find a cure to my problems, and then eventually after around ten years of research I managed to easily cure my mind numbing disorder without any type of medicine or side effects.

The actions they carry out worsen when they are in stress and also when they are self-conscious of their problems and forcefully try to put a stop to them.

A bats man in a game of cricket may tap the cricket pitch with his bat a couple of times before facing the fast paced bowler. He consciously knows that tapping the cricket pitch with his bat isn’t going to improve his batting but it simply makes him feel comfortable. The feelings of a Tourette’s sufferer falls in the same category. The problem with Tourette’s is that these feelings are negative feelings and the more we try to stop them the harder we find trying to stop, thus becoming a vicious circle.

In any situation that provokes anxiety people tend to have recurring thoughts. At times, especially when a person is feeling emotional, these thoughts can become so strong that it starts to effect simple tasks which then further increase the anxiety level. If these reccurring thoughts continue for a length of time it could become a vicious cycle that a person finds difficult to break. Tourette’s fall in this category.
