Life's A Twitch! Celebrating 15 years.
1998 - 2018
Life's A Twitch! Celebrating 15 years.


Some past certificate recipients! A night of friendship among Touretters in Hamilton, ON, Canada (July 2000).

As Touretters, we are often fighting demons unseen and unappreciated by others.  We are often putting in superhuman effort for little payoff or recognition.  We are often frustrated, angry, depressed or anxious about situations or experiences that no one else has to go through, or can fully understand.  We are often seen as bad people, when really we are very good people dealing with very tough problems.

We all deserve an award for the energy we invest EVERYDAY in  just trying to be what everyone else expects of us.  So, my friend, here it is.

  • To look at your award, simply click on the picture below.
  • To download it in Portable Document Format (PDF), right-click on the picture below and select "save target as". To read, print or save PDF files you need Adobe Acrobat Reader (available for free).



You know what? You are a winner........the fact that many people may not always recognize that only makes you a more worthy winner.  CONGRATULATIONS!
