David Begnaud Tourette

As a child, Begnaud was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome when he was 6 years of age. Tourette generally emerges in childhood and is marked by recurrent, uncontrollable movements and vocal tics. The tics typically begin to manifest between the ages of 2 and 15, and males are three to four times more likely to develop the disorder than females.

Tics can range from very minor movements like shrugging or blinking the eyes to uncontrollable vocalizations like blurting out words or phrases. However, Begnaud hadn’t spoken about his diagnosis publicly until December 2018 after a writer from his alma mater, the University of Louisiana Lafayette, asked him about it during an interview. According to David, his parents never allowed him to use it as an excuse for not succeeding, and a lot of his success in journalism could be attributed to his perseverance and determination in the face of having Tourette’s. His tics, which are mainly nonvocal, include sniffing.

As a child, Begnaud changed elementary schools five times as manifestations of his symptoms made him a target for bullying. Even his teachers were cruel at times. Although there is no known treatment for Tourette syndrome, it can be managed. Tics are a lifelong condition, however, they can sometimes lessen with age.

Two-thirds of people with Tourette syndrome as children continue to have some tics throughout their lives. While some are milder, others continue to be very severe into adulthood. Begnaud talked about the tics he still has, such as the frequent sniffing. Begnaud experienced bullying as a child, which he attributed to both having Tourette’s and being gay.
