I have no diagnosis and am unsure of whether I've ended up in the right place. Looking at this page I feel I am wasting your time as most of you seem to be in much worse situations than myself. I'm a 21 year old female and have been wheelchair bound for just under 3 months now as my legs have simply stopped working. I also have severe twitches/motor tics - it looks as though I am having a seizure however these are almost constant and I am awake and perfectly aware throughout. I'm really struggling to deal with peoples reactions towards me; strangers, friends and family. Any advice/coping mechanisms etc would be massively appreciated as it has got to the stage that I no longer leave the house, not purely due to peoples reactions but I would be a liar if I were to say that it is not a factor. The more stressed I get the worse the 'tics' become. Any feedback or personal experience would be truly appreciated. I know this is not a disfigurement but it would be amazing to speak to someone who truly understands how quick people are to make a judgement and the effect it has.
