Anonymous asked: asking this on anon is a pussy move, I've been suffering with tics for about 15years now, I'm about to turn 20. motor and vocal, they keep me awake (currently 4:37am) I'm humming to myself practically crying. It pisses my family off but I try to explain that I can't help it, it breaks my heart knowing that it's annoying them and I can't control it. went 2docs last year &now waiting for a neurology appt.. Any words of wisdom for me ? Or something I don't know kinda looking for positive vibes here
It’s not a pussy move, not everyone is comfortable with their personal business being all over the internet. I’m in the exact same boat, 20 years old and having had tics for ~15 years. I know it sucks pretty much all the time, but feeling guilty won’t accomplish anything. You do not have any control over this disorder, and therefore you should not feel negatively about it. If your family makes a big negative thing out of it, (not tryna be offensive buuuuut) they’re not very nice people. Family is supposed to be supportive, not a driving force behind guilt. The best advice I can give is that you can only control your perception, so if you think positively, your life will be more positive. Being down on yourself constantly is only going to make things worse.
