You might think I'm twisted for saying this, but I think people with Tourette's are cool. There was this guy on Oprah...and whenever she wasn't talking he kept like clucking and snapping and stuff. And I just kept thinking how awesome that was. ...O_o...
Neutral I wouldn't call tourettes awesome.

I have tourettes Retard
That's a personality disorder..isnt it


If that was a joke, I'll come back in here and Pwn you all the way to Pluto and back again, I swear I will. Tourettes is NOT funny.


However, if you were serious, you should really learn more about what you have O__o Seriously... I'll add on to what you said. Tourettes on its own is not a personality disorder. It caues you to have tics. It can range from mild cases that affect your eye blinking, or facial movements, or even cause you to cough and sneeze uncontrollably. It can also be very severe, and result in your limbs ticing uncontrollably, to the point where at times some people can't even remain balanced enough to stand. You can also have phonic tics which is where you made sounds involuntary. This doesn't mean you shout out a bunch of obscene words all the time Rolling Eyes That type of tourettes is not all that common. Infact Coprolalia accounts for less that 14% of tourettes cases..
There are other kinds of Tic disorders, but Tourettes seems to be the most commonly diagnosed one. You usually develop it as a child.

Now, like I said it isn't a personality disorder, but studies so show that people with tourettes have a higher prevalence for developing personality disorders, and it really isn't unexpected. Imagine what they live with, the frusteration that Tourettes brings GREATLY effects your personality, and can at some points make you violent, especailly with the things you say. It makes your tolerance levels for anything so low in some cases, and Tourettes is commonly linked to depression and obsessionality disorders. It may be a physical disorder, but it does more than that. If you get bit by a dog, you have a physical wound. The dog bite did that, but actually experiencing it could cause you to develop a fear of dogs. its a chain effect. All of the stress tourettes puts on you DOES change your personality. Its a terrible, horrible disease.

I've said it earlier.I'm not joking.Because only a stupid gay teacher in my friends school called Carl Smith would make fun of people with Tourettes Evil or Very Mad

I developed it when I was 8 which was not nice.I've been in so many 'Special' Schools ;_; I just wanna be in a 'normal' one.

I am getting talked about because I talk to myself.

*shrugs* I don't think it's a sign of any disorder.

I just prefer repeating poems to myself. It calms me down.

Hehe. I do that too. I recite lines from Jabberwocky and some Ogden Nash stuff. I don't think that's any disorder. It's a disorder if you're like

"I like pie. No you don't. Yes I do. Yes you don't. No I do!" or something.

I do that. Whenever I get really mad or upset, I recite songs to calm myself down.

Alright. I think that these disorters come from certain situations that we go through. Like with me. I've always been a very nervous, panic person. But a couple years ago I went to this concert, (I HATE puking it's my worst fear.) and of course I puked all over lol and from that day i've had the worst panic attacks ever. And i'm anti-social, and i'm just all fucked up. But it's all because of one situation I went through that freaked me out. But for some other disorters I believe you can be born with them.
