"Hi my name is Phillip Muddiman and am 11years old in 6th grade.
I was diagnosed with TS when I was In 3rd grade.
My tics are blinking, throat clearing, tapping and hand movements.
It is hard to look at something without blinking and controlling tics. I often lose my concentration
When I am sad, stressed, or angry I like to write. I like to skateboard and hang out with my friends. I also love Taekwondo, I am a green belt and working to get my black belt someday
I wish people knew that I can not control my tics, and I can not help doing them. I have to do my tics"
