Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Born in the suburbs of Chicago, Troye Evers began experiencing tics around the age of ten. His Tourette syndrome was not diagnosed until he was eighteen. He suffered through an adolescence made up of daily teasing, bullying, and inappropriate educational placements in school. After years of attempting to hide his condition and suppress his tics, he became open about his diagnosis in his thirties. He penned a screenplay about his experiences that went on to win third place in the All Access Screen Writing competition. Two years later, he found himself voted onto the board of the Tourette Syndrome Association of New York City.

Good book for understanding adults who still live with TS.
Just wish this book was around some 30 years ago.

I found a high percentage of similar experiences of misdiagnosis and prescribed pharmaceutical grasping for straws to no avail. Looking for help for my 8 yr old nephew in San Jose, CA who recently diagnosed with tics by neurologist who is prescribing psycotic drugs and he is on 3-4 different RX in less than 6 months. Drugs only temporarily work and then tics manifest back again. My hypothesisis: Drugs may worsen tics and actually lead to Tourettes.
Help me find out how to treat effectively with bio-feedback, diet, and meditation until they mainstream "Deep Brain Surgery". Find out how DBS worked and how it corrected the electrical neuronal misfirings going on. Study potential lazar surgery procedure so not as treacherous as first DBS for first Tourettes case in 2001, that effectively halted those misfirings and created new neuroplasticity connections!

Format: Paperback
i am sitting in my kitchen boiling water for the french press coffee maker. right as i pour the boiling water from the pot into the french press coffee maker, i get a text message. i slightly move the arm that is holding the pot of boiling water and i spill some of the boiling water onto the pointer finger on my left hand. i instantly drop the pot of boiling water (note: i am in shock) and run to the sink to put my hand under cold water. i put my hand under cold water for about ~3 minutes and then i run and immediately eat ~3 asprin.

i read the text message and it says that my friend's dad's best friend died. my friend 'cant stop crying' even though she 'didnt know him at all' but it is still 'so sad'. people want things to cry over.

my finger doesnt hurt at all. i probably didnt need to take the asprin.
