Tourette Syndrome: The One Itch Gold Bond Can't Relieve

Episode description

As we move along with the growth of my podcast, I'm tackling subjects I've been wanting to touch upon for a while. This time, I'm talking about Tourette Syndrome and everything in between it. As someone who struggles with tics and the anxieties that come with it, I want to use my voice for good. So, in order to show you a side of Tourette Syndrom beyond the common "f" bombs, let's dig in.

When I talk about tics, I'm not necessarily talking about pests on a dog but more so about pests of the mind. Tourette Syndrome is a heavily stereotyped and misunderstood neurological disorder that causes the sufferer to have involuntary movements, sounds, or both together. Some people have stronger forms of Tourette than others, but what comes in common is the major discomfort. Overall, this is something one cannot control without therapy and possibly medications; the struggle can be embarrassing.

Most of this episode has an undertone of "it's time to change the conversation" because it truly is time. Let's talk about Tourette Syndrome like we talk about our allergies, rashes, and all other itches. Many itches have Benedryl and Cortisone cream, but Tourette Syndrome is the one itch Gold Bond truly can't relieve.
