To the Bullies Who Made Fun of My Tourette Syndrome — Thank You

"Dear Bully,

This is a thank you letter. Yes, you read it correctly — a thank you letter. I want to thank you for making fun of me when I couldn’t control my body from moving uncontrollably. I want to express how grateful I am for the times you mimicked me behind my back to your friends and would throw small objects at me while sitting on the bus. For the times you would whisper and laugh aloud to others while staring at me. Due to these experiences, you helped build my confidence, made me stronger, gave me courage. I may sound delusional, but I am speaking from my heart. That is something I can honestly say I can control.

Well, I really can’t give you all the credit. You were a contributor, but it’s #TouretteSyndrome that has created the self-reliant girl I am today. With support from teachers, doctors, my family and friends, I am who I am. As I come to the end of my letter, I want to assure you I am not upset with you, I am grateful.

For me, you have given more meaning to the quote, “I have Tourette’s, but Tourette’s doesn’t have me.” So thank you, thank you very much.”

- Olivia, Tourette Association of America Youth Ambassador

“I was diagnosed at 6 years old with #TouretteSyndrome. Squeaking, jerking, grunting... every tic you could think of, I did at some point. Throughout my whole childhood, I felt ashamed of it. I felt like I could never be myself or escape the social stigma of my tics.

Every day I would try to keep the tics inside, but that just made everything at school and elsewhere more difficult. With the help of a psychiatrist, I was able to learn to embrace my tics. Going into college, I decided to put my experience to good use. I majored in Neuroscience and minored in Japanese, joined sports teams and other clubs, and volunteered in the hospital.

It wasn't easy, but over time I learned to be confident in myself and my abilities and learned to enjoy life rather than hide from it. Having Tourette has only made me more empathetic to the circumstances of others. I've been working towards becoming a doctor, and during college I also found a love for scientific research in the laboratory.

Now I'm working at a medical center and applying to medical school to be a physician-scientist. I plan to aid others with Tourette in the clinic and help find the cure in the lab. I want others to know that having Tourette doesn't define you. It's a part of you, but you can overcome it. It makes you special, not 'weak' or 'broken.’

You can do whatever you set your mind to, if you believe in yourself and believe you belong - because you DO belong. I'm living proof of that. Keep moving forward, just one day at a time, and take care of the people around you. Happy #TouretteAwarenessMonth!” – Colin

Tourette’s poses no setback for EOD Airman

“Tourette Syndrome isn’t something I can easily hide, so I decided my best strategy was to be open about it. By being open and explaining to people ahead of time what they might see, they are more likely to ask me questions rather than try to speculate about my condition.” – U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Kel Hannum
Kel’s passion for building things and problem-solving led to a 21-year Air Force career, with one of his favorite roles being an EOD flight commander. He credits #TouretteSyndrome with making him a more proactive and engaged leader and hopes he can inspire those with TS to overcome the challenges to chase their own dreams.
