image for Tourette syndrome, a big joke!
"I have Tourette syndrome"

Andy is a misunderstood young man suffering from Tourette syndrome, but is he really ill? If you watch Andy from a far you will see him kick, punch and spit his way along the pavement. We caught up with him as he shouted "f**k you," at an old women.

"When I was young a young lad me Ma caught me swearing through somebody's letterbox. As she grabbed me by the ear I said I can't help it. She took me to the Doc's and before I knew it I had Tourette syndrome. I couldn't tell the truth because me Ma would've killed me," said Andy, now 25 years old and still a practising Tourette syndrome sufferer.

"Why would I want to tell the truth," he says convincingly. "I mean how else would society let me walk around swearing in the face of a coffin dodger?" Andy has a point. "If I were mad as a hatter they would section me and if I were proved sane lock me up in prison! However with Tourettes I can do as I please and people just smile - bizarre," he adds.

When we put Andy's story to a boffin we asked him what proof they had of Tourette syndrome. "It exists as a brain malfunction within the cerebellum," he said. When we pointed out that he still hadn't supplied us with any proof he told us to simply f**k off!
