Anonymous asked: I've had friends tell me they couldn't find me in a crowd until I ticced and "all was right with the world." I've also had people who hadn't seen me in a while get really excited the first time they hear me tic again because they missed hearing because it meant I wasn't there.

Aww haha I love hearing positive stories that come from our tics. :]

The song Niggas in Paris, in the background you can hear a guy yelp out multiple times. It sounds just like one of my common vocal tics. My friend told me when that song came on at work, she thought I had walked in.

People need to realize that there are days when you’re not in the mood to talk or interact with anyone.

Anonymous asked: I have an offensive tic 'your mother is a crack whore', and I worked hard at getting rid of it, I did it again a few days ago while getting drunk with friends, and they were like 'WE MISSED IT' which hurt me, because I've nearly been beaten in the street because of that tic, I don't think my friends understand that tourettes is serious? Do have any tips to get them to take it seriously?

I’m sorry, that’s pretty inconsiderate of them. :/ Have you tried having a serious conversation with them about it? They need to know that Tourette’s isn’t a cute quirk, it’s a very serious and debilitating disorder. Try explaining the science behind it and giving very serious examples. If you need help writing out a dialogue to use while talking to them, I’m very happy to help you out! Good luck. <3
