My son is so confused about where to go to college. He wants his tourette's to go away so that he can live a normal life and go away to school. Right now it's unimaginable that he could have roomates while having the tics that he has. If he tried for his own room, he says he would feel too different from everyone. I'm encouraging the local community college, but he gets mad at the suggestion, because to him it means he can't live a normal life and go away if he wants to. He's asking me when his tics will go away. It's like he's been waiting for the past 8 years for them to go away so he can live a normal life. I tell him we don't know if they ever will, so he needs to live his life the best he can for himself. He's struggling right now, and I'm not sure how to help him.
