As we near the end of another unparalleled year, the team at the Tourette Association of America (TAA) has been reflecting on the work that has been accomplished. The global events of last year pushed us to rethink how we can better increase awareness for Tourette Syndrome (TS) and address the most pressing issues facing our community. In 2021 the TAA focused on a path of growth stemming from those efforts.

October is a mega-month for our community and for the Tourette Association of America. Together we celebrate National Bullying Prevention Month, ADHD Awareness Month and OCD Awareness Week. I say celebrate because it is a wonderful thing that we can reflect on past struggles that have effected real and lasting change. For those of us who have endured any and all of those conditions, we also know the burden and weight they can bring. It is why we keep shining light on the important efforts of the TAA and our community partners so that everyone can feel supported and understood.

Recently our country celebrated a monumental milestone – 20 years since the tragedy, bravery, and heroism of 9/11. It’s hard to believe that so much time has passed, because like many of you, I remember my precise whereabouts, thoughts, and feelings from that day. Each year we pay tribute, as we will truly #neverforget. Throughout the posts on our social feeds, there was a sense of unity and solidarity in our respects for the day, but I also read many remarks about the impact it had on our community. For some, the stress, fear and anxiety caused tics to skyrocket. For others, it was the first indication that what they were experiencing was tics and they needed to consult a doctor. This continued reflection of the last 20 years has underscored how far resources and support have come for us in the TS community. One thing remains, we are all in this together.
