Tourettes doco

Recently I saw a documentary called, "My F-ing Tourettes Family" on SBS Viceland. It was compelling and informative. A couple have two young sons both with Tourettes syndrome. It's an illness I didn't know a lot about. I knew they had an uncontrollable urge to make noises or swear. I didn't know that bodily movements were also involved. The film showed what it was like living with the illness and being parents of children affected. When they go out for a meal there are often people staring or getting angry. Also when they go to school their parents worry about them being bullied. It must be very hard to involuntarily swear at people. They have to explain their condition to people a lot. But the older child managed to make good friends and even to do a talk on Tourettes to a school.
