alt.support.tourette is an open newsgroup for all those living with Tourette Syndrome (TS), those with friends or family who have TS, or those interested in TS.
There is a broad range of feelings and opinions on TS: some consider it a degrading neurological disease, others as a blessing in disguise with challenges to learn to cope with, and some see it as a special identity. Also, Tourette Syndrome manifests itself in as many different forms as there are people carrying the gene.
This FAQ will therefore attempt to be representative of as broad a range of divergent viewpoints as possible.
NOTE: Since the newsgroup is only in its infancy, and only a handful of messages have trickled through to my news site, this pre-FAQ as yet only contains the facts as I know them and my opinions. I have tried to answer the most important questions I anticipate people asking.
Please comment, criticise and otherwise let me know what you would like to see put in and taken out so that this can become a proper FAQ!
