    Tourette’s With Dignity: Don’t TIC Me Off

  • By Stuart Ellis-Myers a.k.a. Twitchy (Keynote speaker living with TS)

    What would you do if, out of the blue, your life turned upside down? What if you went from being a happy, healthy, normal, child, and suddenly became an anxious, depressed, twitchy mess of devastating proportion? This is exactly what happened to Stuart Ellis-Myers. At the age of eight, Stuart began to develop one of the most misunderstood mental illnesses of our time . . . Tourettes Syndrome. Faced with the prospect of a lifetime of frustration, isolation, and shame – the typical reaction to this tragic condition – Stuart instead chose to make his life into something remarkable. One of the most gifted and inspiring public speakers on the corporate circuit today, Stuart has used the life lessons learned through years of battling this often emotionally crippling disorder to help countless others to overcome their own challenges and fears.

    This is an interesting, fun, often laugh out loud funny read, where along the way, you are guaranteed to find something that will touch your heart, intrigue your mind and warm your soul. It would be easy to categorize this as “just another self-help book”, but it is so much more. This is the story of a man who refused to accept other people’s “truths”. It is the story of a man who chose to, not only survive but become UNSTOPPABLE.
