Overview
In I Am Myself, Thersea Borrelli recounts her journey from a diagnosis of Tourette Syndrome in childhood, to a state of acceptance. At first, Theresa developed an attitude that was defensive, and critical of the doctors who treated her. Slowly, as a young adult, she began to assimilate, acknowledge and reconcile her disorder, for which there is no cure. Though about Tourette Syndrome, I Am Myself offers the reader a universal experience, relatable to the challenges that all of us face at one time or another. This is a memoir that will change your perspective on confronting and overcoming obstacles, prejudices, and struggles. Ms. Borrelli's passage from a young girl to a woman, who can now foresee a brighter future, is chronicled in this inspiring, uplifting book. Theresa Borrelli grew up in West New York, New Jersey, and currently resides in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Among her other endeavors, Ms. Borrelli was most recently a college professor, teaching Criminal Justice. Ms. Borrelli was inspired to write I Am Myself in order to share her personal story and struggle with Tourette Syndrome.
