My name is Romy and I am 19 years old. I first started raising awareness of conditions such as OCD, Tic Conditions, and Autism when I was 12 years old. It started with a small social media page. I was inspired to make it because other people in the community helped me to accept myself and no longer feel ashamed of my experiences.
When I was 17 years old I began focusing a lot on raising awareness for conditions called PANDAS and PANS, I am strongly suspected to have PANS from a throat infection. PANS and PANDAS are highly misunderstood conditions. So many doctors don't even have adequate knowledge on the conditions. The community deserves better.
There are many people who haven't heard of PANS/PANDAS, or who don't know how it is different from Classic OCD and Tourette Syndrome. This is why I moved my focus of awareness more over to this area, but I continue to raise awareness of OCD, Autism, and Tics as well through my YouTube Channel Ticcers Unite.
Due to my health challenges and differences, I struggle to work a typical job. This is why I set up this Buy Me A Coffee page, to see if I can make my passion my career whilst continuing to help others, raise awareness, and support the community.
Here is my website where I write blog posts: Ticcers Unite - Tourette's, PANDAS / PANS, OCD
