Guest Blog: Anthony's Story
Hello, my name is Anthony. I am 16 and currently living with TS. I was diagnosed after 4th grade and have had some trouble dealing with people after my TS became more noticeable.I have A.D.H.D. aswell so it was a little harder for me to learn than the other kids. My 6th grade year i was given the nickname "twitch" and was teased.
Everyday about it but now as a sophmore in highschool, I am in my schools A.F.J.R.O.T.C. program and am apart of its drill team. I believe my story will inspire other people with t.s. to not only cope with living with their unique problem and to push their limits because for me i found something i love and am doing great with. So just because you are a little different doesnt mean anything. I have been yelled at by Marines and have not ticked once so I know I have took t.s. by the horns and somewhat took control. When I am at attention I dont tick I tell myself 'keep be calm, don't break' and after a little bit of practice with the mindset I succeeded. So I belive i am an example of a t.s. success story,well almost anyways. So be strong and use your unique problem to have fun with your life.
