Tourette Syndrome by Hollie Jane on Fri Jul 15, 2011 2:44 pm
I am writing on behalf of a dear friend who is suffering from Tourettes Syndrome, he has written a little passage about what’s happened to him and how he feels. He is not confident enough to upload and join himself so I thought I would do it for him and will pass any comments made on to him his name is D and he is 17 years old.
‘I have had Tourettes Syndrome and other neurological problems since I was a child I am now 17 and unemployed and don’t have any qualifications and this makes me feel very down as i find it hard to communicate with people the way ‘normal’ people do and this makes me very frustrated and my frustration is turning into sheer anger.
I had a lot of trouble with school from the age of 11, I was given time out sessions and in the end I was not allowed in any of my classes, and my last few important years of school were a total and utter waste.
My Tourettes is not as bad as it has been but i left school without and qualifications and I felt very let down by the education system. I am a very bright and lonely individual that doesn’t see any future for my life, every corner i turn i feel as though i get kicked in the teeth by everyone. I cannot speak to people for the fact that i always feel like people are laughing at me.
I also suffer from O.C.D, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and A.D.H.D people say they are willing to help me but i am met with ignorant people and as far as the establishment is concerned i am a total waste of time. I want to be able to work and be treated like an equal and someone to take the time to give me chance to say what i want to say without getting impatient at me or looking at me like I’m some sort of freak.
I have anger problems and can lash out when people over step the mark and think I am an idiot people seem to think they can say what they like to me and about my family and i am going to sit there and take it, I won, I lash out physically due to my frustrations.
I currently still live with my mom who is supporting me as i do not claim any benefits for any of my problems as i want to get my education and training towards a job.
Can someone please point me in the right direction on how I can get help to improve my life; i am from the black country area of the west midlands and just needs someone to point me in the right direction so I can start to feel like my life is going somewhere rather than nowhere’
If anyone could point him the direction of any support groups, colleges that are sensitive to his needs, any apprenticeships that are willing to take him on despite his problems and anger issues, i can honestly say you really couldn’t meet a nicer person he just really needs to be given a break and for someone to prove to him that not everyone looks at him like he is some sort of freak show.
Thanks for reading,
Sorry if there are any mistakes as i am also dyslexic 
Hollie and D
