youscareme asked: Mehhh. I just need to vent since you'll understand. My fingers&wrists are so sore. I have to tap EVERYTHING. I rest my chin on my hand in class, but recently have had to punch my chin several times. When I was putting something away earlier today I had a random tic (that I haven't had), &being too close to the wall, I naturally hit my arm on it. My neck always hurts often leading to a tension headache. I know WHY they're worse. I have finals/a research paper due next week. Still sucks, though.
I’m sorry. :[ I completely understand how awful it can be to have certain tics causing physical harm. I hit my head on anything near me every time I have a head jerk, and I have a scratching tic that has completely destroyed my ankle. I get constant headaches from my head jerk as well. :/ Unfortunately, stress will always make them worse, but you can find some coping mechanisms to try to help you. :] I like aromatherapy, reading, or retail therapy. :P But anything that you really love and can focus on will hopefully help relieve your tics for a short while. :] I hope you feel better soon and you’re always welcome to come here and vent as often as you’d like! :]
