Can you tell us how having Tourette Syndrome (TS)  has affected you?

Tourettes Action have created a survey 'Why Tourettes Matters?' about the impact of having Tourette Syndrome (TS) or a Tic Disorder. Tourettes Action feels that gathering this information would be very useful in raising awareness with the public, medical professionals, funders and policy makers. Your answers remain anonymous and we would like to thank you in advance for your important contribution to our work and for helping to raise awareness of Tourette Syndrome.
