I have been thinking about creating a thread like this for quite some time. Yet up till now I have lacked the courage to try. I want to know how many of us have, and the effects of (physically and emotionally), genetic disorders. I guess I'm curious to see if there is anyone else around here that may have something in common with myself.
I have Tourette Syndrome. My tics are both motor and typically consist of either me "playing" (for lack of a better word) with my hands or rubbing the bridge of my nose vertically. Though the latter developed much later in my life. I was diagnosed at around age 6, and have taken medication ever since. The disorder may have, at least in part, triggered teasing from my peers and I didn't have a lot of friends as a child. As a result of my mixed environment (affectionate family, and outcast-ed at school) I have become the paradox I am today.
