I just have to say this, if you are faking Tourette’s or any ticking disorder fuck. You. Do you know how many times I’ve been in the hospital because of my tics and how I nearly bashed my head open. You guys do not help spread awareness, you make the problem even worse to the point no one wants to hear us out because they think we are faking too. Idc if I’m using correct grammar or not you are the problem people with Tourette’s aren’t. If you generally fake Tourette’s for fun you disgust me.

      People do that to make fun of me all the time. It kinda backfires coz I usually end up having a tic and punching them lol

        @lai I just don’t know why it’s a world wide epidemic to fake tourrettes and tics rn. It’s getting hard to even know who’s are real anymore cuz everyone’s been faking. But I’ve always been giving people the benefit of the doubt because sometimes tourrettes is so complex it might look a little bit fake so I never wanna think someone’s faking. It’s just hard when people joke about it too. If I suspect someone is faking I just don’t give them the time of day when they wanna talk about their tics or point it out 24/7 because eventually they’ll stop when they realize they aren’t getting the attention from it. Also just talking about tics makes mine worse sometimes so I don’t really understand why anyone would want to talk about it in the first place. I try to hide mine from the world not show them. I’ve had noticibley bad tics for 5 years and I’m so self conscious so I just don’t really understand why anyone would WANT to draw attention to themselves. But that’s just my opinion. I wanna hear yours.

          @Olivia18 I had a friend who i watched debelope tics over the past year and finally got diagnosed and since I've had it for longer she asks me a lot of questions about how I deal with certain situations with tics. She's really the only person I talk about it with though. We have also talked about people faking and we talk quite a bit about doctors who suck. I'm sure we've all been there. But indeed talking about it is a trigger for me except with that one friend. Other than her I would find some random person wanting to talk about it odd. Other than me explaining it to them initially and they have a question cause I've had that as well. I really don't understand this epidemic of people faking tics though. In general for me its just so embarrassing. I'm so embarrassed most of the time I don't even care if I've injured myself so I really don't understand why someone would want to make themselves stand out like that when its quite literally something that causes me insane amounts of anxiety living with.

      Yeah exactly because it makes this awful stigma that all we do is swear and make obscene gestures.. NOT TRUE AT ALL. I just jerk my body and make weird facial expressions, fling a limb, every now an then I’ll hit someone on accident, maybe flip someone off every now and then but the people that fake it make it so hard for those of us with ACTUAL tourrettes to be seen as real people. It’s not cute. I hate when people say “oh I wish I had tourrettes so I could….” People have lots of nerve nowadays. Wish you guys the best tho.
