Hiya.. how do I stop myself from having hitting tics? I randomly try to hit my 13 year old shihztu when I'm angry and I don't know why. Is it apart of autism or am I having a different tic with another problem with me?
Hitting tics: Hiya.. how do I stop myself... - Autism Support
Hello 👋 have you tried to squeeze something to prevent that tic from happening . Also do you get a premonitory urge to do it ?
I don't mean to! It just randomly happens. I don't get the time to grab something because if she's next to me I'll hit her not hard but like enough to make her bite me
Do you feel like your about to sneeze or have a itch before doing it ? . I understand you dont mean to ☺️ my friend has Tourette’s syndrome so I understand
Yes I feel it coming but it's almost instantly. And it's been happening for about 3 months
Have you told someone ?
Hi there. You probably know that Tourette's Syndrome has a higher rate in population of people with Autism than in an equivalent number of those without Autism. Maybe you have missed that diagnosis? Maybe you have other tics? You mentioned this hitting has only happened in past 3 months, so has there been a change in circumstances for you or other reason for increased stress and tension which can trigger tics in people with or without Tourette's?
How are you doing now ?
