Anonymous asked: Let me share a story: I never tell people that I have tics, because I can control them semi-good when around people. So far, no one has asked me about it. During a study-all nighter with my classmates, I was having several full-body tics throughout the night. Concerned, they asked. I said I had tics, and they were sympathetic, and haven't brought it up since. I see on internet all the time how people react with ridicule or ignorance- I forgot people can be nice about it too.
Thank you for sharing! My friends have always been perfectly nice about it. The good people heavily outweigh the bad, it’s just much easier to remember the bad.
