Hi. My name is Cyane. I love being outdoors, I positively adore climbing and, oh, yeah… I have Tourette Syndrome (TS).
Whoa, no; I don’t swear. No, um, I don’t think it’d be more fun if I ‘developed’ the swearing kind. No, actually, it is not the perfect excuse to swear.
Hang on; let me clear up some common misconceptions here. Let me tell you what TS is really.
First, imagine the biggest sneeze you can.
Now, hold it; don’t let it out. Even if the pressure builds.
That feeling. Right there. Imagine that feeling in your body constantly. That is the closest feeling I can relate to how Tourette Syndrome feels. That is the best way I know to explain to other people how I nearly always feel.
It’s a purposeless tension that is always building, that must be released somehow.
