One of the first Ask questions I ever asked
was about my Tourette Syndrome. A few different commented or contacted me to say that they'd never seen TS described so accurately before. I recently rewrote and expanded that comment into an article for xojane
, and as a result, have been asked to present a keynote speech at the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada's yearly conference in October 2015.

I want to thank the community for providing a safe place for me to start working out my thoughts on my disorder, years ago, and for being so supportive. Also, I want to point out how awesome it is that you own the copyright on your own posts
, which is what allowed me to repurpose some of the writing from my Ask post into a separate article.
