Two young adults, Hayley Gripp and Eric McGowan, sit down to speak about their lives living with Tourette Syndrome. Hayley Gripp discusses her diagnosis experience, co- occurring conditions, CBIT, and how she manages her symptoms by creating a more positive environment through education. Similarly, Eric McGowan discusses how he addresses his symptoms with others through honesty about his diagnosis. The young adults bond over managing their symptoms through doing what they love, music and cooking.
“There are days I hate my diagnosis and days where I think I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” -Hayley Gripp
