Josh Hanagarne couldn t be invisible if he tried. Although he wouldn’t officially be diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome until his freshman year of high school, Josh was six years old when he first began exhibiting symptoms. When he was twenty and had reached his towering height of 6’7″, his tics escalated to nightmarish levels. Determined to conquer his affliction, Josh tried countless remedies, with dismal results. At last, an eccentric, autistic strongman taught Josh how to throttle his tics into submission using increasingly elaborate feats of strength. What started as a hobby became an entire way of life and an effective way of managing his disorder.
