"My name is Brendon. I'm 6yrs old and I am from Louisiana.
I was diagnosed with TS when I was 4. My tics include: head shaking, blinking, hand flapping, the need to stop while walking, and occasionally a few vocal tics.
The hardest part is my head shaking tic. When I can't stop shaking my head, it gives me a really bad headache.
I like to draw, play soccer, and do flips.
I want people to understand that I can't help my tics and that they bother me."
