• Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

     

    Mozart

    (1756-1791) In late 1992, the British Medical Journal published an article by endocrinologist Benjamin Simkin, M.D. speculating that Mozart had Tourette Syndrome. Apparently he wrote several letters to his cousin Maria that contained many obscene words, especially words having to do with bodily functions. It has also been documented that he was hyperactive, suffered from mood swings, had tics, and loved made-up words. Despite these behaviors, we will probably never know for certain whether Mozart had TS.

  1. I love what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and coverage! Keep up the great works guys I’ve you guys to blogroll.|

    • Thank you so much for your encouraging words. This is a project in the making at the moment for us. I will be building and updating as much as I can over the coming weeks and months.

      Finding time to transfer what I already have waiting to publish on here is proving a challenge and it is not moving as quickly as I had hoped. Full time job, parenting and running a household whilst finding time to learn website design and make this into the functional resource intended makes life one that is experienced in full.

      Be sure to keep popping back and you will see it grow and develop.

      Hello Marc! I am writing for 2 raeosns actually, number one is to give you big kudos for your work and accomplishments. As the mother of a 27 year old son with Tourette’s, let me just say you are doing a wonderful job! Second, I wanted to let you know that I wrote my research essay on Tourette’s in college (yes, I am a returning college student at the ripe old age of 51). As part of that paper, I did a written interview with my son and have posted it on my blog. I also put one of your you tube videos on that blog entry and am hoping that this is ok with you. If not, please let me know and I will remove it. I posted my blog with your video because it was a wonderful way to help people to become more aware of the disorder and not to take it so lightly. Thank you for your wonderful insight and keep up the good work!
