BIOGRAPHIES

Patterson, James   www.jamespatterson.com   www.readkiddoread.com
and Friedman, Hall  Against Medical Advice  - Preface - "One morning in March of 1989, just before my
5th birthday, I woke up as a normal, healthy body.  By that afternoon, I had an irresistible urge to shake my head - continually...Before long, my body became an explosive, volatile, and unpredictable force with a mind and personality of its  own.  It jerked, and tested, bent in half, and gyrated without warning until I was almost always in motion.  I bit down on my teeth until I actually broke them and howled in pain, because of the exposed nerves.  I twisted my back around with such force that I tore muscle tissue and had to be drugged asleep to stop myself from doing it.  My mind fed me thoughts so frightening I couldn't even talk about them to my parents...I felt like a boy on the end of a puppeteer's string.  What made it even worse was knowing that I was also the puppeteer."
Chapter 53 "There's anger too, but not the kind that leads to my rage attacks.  This is an anger that can be used and channeled.  The idea of fighting back comes with such urgency, that I want to write it all down - so I can think about it when I wake up again...The war has now begun." 
After a couch fire, the family began an intervention, which with Cory's eventual cooperation, Cory's life
began to turn around...Cory Friedman recovered from a diabolical case of OCD, Tourette's syndrome,
and anxiety disorder; he remains now on minimal medication with minimal Tourettete symptoms.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4I6IL6mQ8qE  "Cory Friedman woke up one morning when he was 5
years old with the uncontrollable urge to twitch his neck. From that day forward his life became a hell of
irrepressible tics and involuntary utterances,
and Cory embarked on an excruciating journey from specialist
to specialist to discover the cause of his disease. Soon it became unclear what tics were symptoms of his
disease and what were side effects of the countless combinations of drugs. The only certainty is that it
kept getting worse. Simply put: Cory Friedman's life was a living hell."

"Nodding disease or nodding syndrome (also referred to as the 'ZOMBIE DISEASE') is a recent, little-known disease which emerged in Sudan in the 1960s.[2] It is a fatal, mentally and physically disabling disease that only affects children, typically between the ages of 5 and 15.
It is currently restricted to small regions in South Sudan, Tanzania, and northern Uganda...
Spiritual diseases are ONLY cured by spiritual means, and the only spirit able to fight and cast out evil spirits, is the JESUS' SPIRIT."
May-09 - Tourette Syndrome: Synaptic or Demonic?  from http://www.a-voice.org/comment.htm This author is 50% correct.  Satan is often the root of Tourette's and NOT the Holy Spirit.  Be reminded; Satan is a counterfeiter.  If at any time a healthy holy acting out is precipitated by the Holy Ghost, then a demonic mirror image can occur, but such a counterfeit is always not nice.  Discernment is always needed.  Discernment is a gift, so request and use it for God's honor.  A "dis-ease" such as Tourette's is never nice.
