A few weeks ago, I participated in the BBC3 short video “Things Not To Say to People With Tourette’s”. The whole series is excellent. Other episodes deal similarly well with other misunderstood conditions such as dyslexia, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Taking part was an excellent opportunity to debunk some common misconceptions about the condition (i.e. that people with Tourette’s swear all the time), but also to meet someone else with the condition (I’ve only met one other person with Tourette’s before). Please do check out the video, and the other ones in the series too.
