My name is Natalie and I am almost 17 years old.  I have ADHD, Tourette’s Syndrome (mild), and a communication disorder called “Semantic Pragmatic Language Disorder” which makes it hard for me to learn when it comes to language or something difficult.

I was diagnosed when I was around 6 years old…and I didn’t talk properly until I was only 3 years old. I am now doing pretty well in school except for the fact that I don’t like my school much as it gives me a hard time, but I have a really nice boyfriend too and he is like me, so that makes it easier. I hope you all like my story.

    You’ve got a pretty heavy load there. It’s so wonderful that you’re able to look it in the face, however, and have a boyfriend who understands what you’re going through. I was eight when I was diagnosed with a tic disorder, and it worsened into full-blown TS when I was in college. I also have OCD tendencies and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Unlike you, however, I wasn’t even willing to admit that I had disorders until they got too bad to ignore in college. Good for you for continuing on in school, despite the challenges your disorders pose. If you ever want to chat, I’d love to talk!
