Tourette’s Syndrome Pictures

tourette syndrome pictures

Tourette's, or is someone just stepping on his foot?

From time to time, just to satisfy my own curiosity and try to see what people are saying about Tourette’s, I’ll jump into a couple of SEO tools and see what people are hunting for. I was surprised this week to find that approximately 140 people each month go to a search engine and type in Tourette’s Syndrome Pictures.

It only surprised me because people with Tourettes look just like everyone else until they have a tic. If you were to take a picture of someone while they are in the middle of a tic, you’d probably get something blurry! Or maybe just someone squinching their face up or blinking.

I checked it out with Google images and it’s about what I expected. So if you arrived here looking for Tourette’s pictures, that link will take you to some. You’ll get a few funny faces, some diagrams of the brain, and a few random looking shots of stuff that doesn’t look too relevant.

I just wanted to say, that I hope you were not being rude, by your comment above…Yes, there are some people who are rude and crude and pick on people with tourette’s but I am not one of them. My husband actually has Tourettes and I am doing my speech on Tourette’s syndrome to let people know what people with Tourettes have to go through and unlike some people I am searching for pictures of the brain, or pictures of statements about tourettes to include in my power point…so maybe you could reword you statement above and direct it to just those crude folks out there and not us who actually care! Thanks!

Hi B.B., thank you. I pride myself on not being rude, so apologies if that’s how it sounds. This post was written shortly after an experience I had with another person hassling me about my own Tourette’s, and it involved pictures of me, shortly before this post was written. Perhaps a bit hasty, but I don’t think it sounds judgmental–only an observation.

I hope you and your husband and doing well, and that your presentation slays them all.

I’m not going to rework the post, but I’ll happily let your comment stay here to remind everyone that our own writing isn’t always taken exactly the way we intend.

I have a friend in his 50′s. His wife has tourettes. He’s looking for other (older) couples with a spouse with T.S. He could use some support and someone to dialogue (email) with. Can you help?
