- that would be a bit ....dictatorish wouldnt it ........ I have a son who tics, especially out in public as he's uncomfortable in crowded places.
We actually think its quite funny and joke about it a lot rather than stress about it.
TS is a bizarre condition and varies greatly in severity-but it is just a fascinating and sometimes comical (and embarrasssing) condition,there just isnt anything like it! I guess it could be embarrassing but to those who know the afflicted person, it shouldnt be a problem. I'd find it really embarrassing if we were walking around sainsburys, lol - so I dont know if I'd be able to cope with someone with tourettes, I suppose it depends on how bad it was. Msg 2; you changed your answer (dramatically,i might add) how did you do that? -I`m still quite new here and dont know where anything is thanks Ok,now i have an edit button,dont know where that came from as it isnt on all posts,only some,and why do i have a delete button under everyones posts?
I can imagine it getting them into some awful problems but tolerance and understanding in most cases should prevail... surely we cant go around deleting posts willy-nilly can we?
Talk to a doctor or therapist who knows TS well about how to do this (basically, it involves finding an alternative behavior that satisfies the same urge).
For example: say you have a nose-picking tic — there might be something else you could do with your finger when that urge comes on.
Although you probably shouldn’t introduce yourself with, “Hi, my name’s Joel, and I have Tourette Syndrome,” it’s a good idea to clear the air early on.
If someone else doesn't like it, that's their problem as far as I'm concerned.
I think its down to knowing the person and actually caring about them not seeing them as someone with Tourettes, if your attracted enough it wouldnt matter surely.
Tourette’s is often accompanied by other neurobehavioral problems like find it difficult to go on dates and make friends — often the result of emotional scars from childhood bullying, concern about being in unfamiliar public spaces, or fears they’ll blurt out inappropriate words orsyndrome. I later learned that she just didn’t want to upset me, so she didn’t know how to react. She had generalized anxiety disorder, so standing out in a crowd freaked her. I hate it so much, and I’ve said it to people skinnier than me. When I go on a date I instantly know if my tics will irritate someone.
I also have to count all the numbers around a particular figure I’m thinking of. His “thing” was unplugging everything before he left the house or went to bed. One day everybody was goofing off, so I asked if I could work outside. The doctor had a thick accent that I couldn’t understand, and I was really irritated because I didn’t know what was going on. You have to be careful what sort of medication you give kids, and the drugs he gave me were about 30 years old. I tried so hard, but the closest I got were guys from that emo goth Fall Out Boy era.
