Mikey has Tourette's. It takes kind acts from two strangers to help him accept who he is.
- Aw, I found this rather sweet. (: Getting added to my favourites.
For school, I guess if someone asks if this story (if you use it for English or whatever) was personal etc it may be awkward but if you want to be open-minded about it then I think that's better instead of saying "Well no...I don't have Tourette's" alot of people feel guiltly when they lie. But you know you could always tell them to mind their own business and only tell close friends.
Anyway, good luck and I loved this one-shot.
Author's responseAw thank you! I'm glad you feel that way.
As for the advice, thanks for that as well. I'm definately not going to lie about it because I don't feel the need to. But like you said, it isn't everyone's business. It's something personal and I'll have to really contemplate on whether or not I make it everyone's business. Thanks again. This will help me so much when it comes down to making a decision.
(#) ElaLovesYou 2010-01-04 05:53:52 AMAll I can say is that I felt better telling my secret. I don't know if it will be the same for you but I'm one of the not success stories. I told my secret and people laughed, and bullied me and even did the thing again. So somethings you should tell and somethings you shouldn't. you should, i shouldn't have.
Good luck :)
Author's responseI think I'm going to take your advice and risk it. I've been teased for almost my entire life about it, and if I have to go back to that I will. At least I'll feel better about myself knowing I chose to be open about it.
Thanks for helping to guide me and sharing a little personal background about yourself. I hope things get better for you if they haven't already. People are real jerks sometimes.
Anyways, thanks again and take care xD
