Hi! I’m Kai. I’ve been suffering with tics since I was around 7. Does anyone have any advice on how to lessen tics? I am on medication.

    My neurologist recommend distraction techniques, so I do things like singing, or play the piano. When I was at the hospital, we came up with this game we called the ABC game, where you choose a topic and pick a word based on the letter you're on. Like Apple, Banana, Clementine, Dragon Fruit,,, etc. Maybe that will help.

    Focusing on something like art, singing, or a pet!

    Hi Ive have tourettes since the second grade, I've been dealing with tics for years and word of advice; try pushing you the pressure point in your wrist and take deep breaths

    Grounding or distracting myself has helped a lot. It has even helped me avoid a few tic attacks!
