Hi, my daughter is 20 and has Tourette's, severe anxiety and is also on a waiting list for a diagnostic autism test. I am her carer and have been since she was first diagnosed. Her tics have become worse, but been given meds. She has now been put forward for a referral for an assessment with social services to see if they can access more help for her...I can't tell my daughter my worries for her but I want to know how she can become semi independent when she is having so many issues? Will she need sheltered housing, if she becomes pregnant will the baby inherit her condition, will she be able to drive and which employers are disability friendly? Yesterday was too much as she had severe tics, and hurt herself in the process...I've had to leave work early today as I feel so stressed 😩 Any help would be great, thanks guys 👍
