An up close and personal take on tourettes. Growing up with tourettes makes life difficult. Everyone thinks you’re weird and no one knows what you’re going through or how you’re feeling. When people who have tourettes they twitch and jerk in class some teachers and students get upset and make them think its their fault. They’re not able to sit through classes and get a normal education. An example of a successful person with tourettes is Dr. Duncan McKinlay. Another successful person with tourettes is Jonathan Friesan. He is the author of “Jerk California” and “Rush”.

Duncan McKinlay is a registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
