"One day I woke up with Tourette's Syndrome, which isn't something I even thought possible at the time. The book you hold in your hands was originally a way to cope with that. I wrote it to help myself, but hopefully, it helps you or whoever you are buying this for. It will become obvious as you read this book that I don't have everything figured out. But I did learn quite a lot since my diagnosis. Things like empathy (which I lacked for quite some time). Things such as how cruel people can be but also how loving and accepting too. Things like how to be a friend to someone. How to look outside and appreciate the fact that you exist. How to realize that there are people out there that currently do and will love you unconditionally. Within this book are the ramblings of a depressed English Major who (with the help of many people) realized that life may not be easy, but it sure is worth it.
Twist and Shout
T.L. Oberheu was diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome at age 17. At age 20, he sat and wrote this book every day during the summer of 2014 when he should have been working, but the constant yelling and twitching kinda made that hard. In 2017 he underwent Deep Brain Stimulation to treat his Tourette’s, and today he works within the Special Education Department of a local Elementary School.
