The Weird Kid With A Disease

Tourette Sndrome is a neurological brain disorder. It means that sometimes I do things, and I can't help it. I wouldn't say I'm normal, but it doesn't make me different. This is my story. Of how I was diagnosed, how I move from place to place because of my father being in the U.S. military, how I cope with questions and life. This, is my story of struggles. I feel pain, I feel tired, I feel different. Yet I thrive...


1. I am Me

My name is Noah Maura Parker. My real first name is Noela-Rose, but if you call me that, I get mad. I'm twelve years old, and I have Tourette Syndrome. Tourette Syndrome (TS), is a neurological brain disorder. All it means is that I sometimes do things and I can't help it. If you ask questions or mention it, my uncontrollable actions get worse. These actions are called "tics", and mine are pretty much blinking twice as much as the average person (I've always done that, but my mom says it's a tic), hand movements, head shaking, and I used to hum different notes, but luckily that went away. My mom has TS too.  She does this shrieking thing that hurts my ears and annoys the crap out of me, but I can't say anything about it, because then it gets worse, she lectures me, and I feel bad, because she can't help it, and I have the same condition. My little brother's name is Tanner. He turned ten in October, and he's a pain in the butt. I'm not the most popular in school. I'm not a nobody, but not popular. I love One Direction, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, The Beatles, reading, music, animals, and  other things needed to live, like food, water, food, oxygen, music, food, singing, oh, and food.  My dad's in the military, so my family moved to Germany last summer.

           This is my story. This is my pain. My suffering. My victory.  I thrive. I survive. I dream. I live.
