Ok, so I'm a 14 year old girl (about to turn 15) and I'm going into highschool in September. I was homeschooled throughout middle school because I was bullied for having Tourette's,selective mutism and OCD. I've also been diagnosed with hdhd an, anxiety, and depression. I'm really worried about going back to school. What if I can't control my tics? What if I completely stop speaking again? What if my OCD/ADHD freaks people out? I'm on special diets and a few different mess for some of this stuff but it's not gone (I'm not expecting it to leave) and it does make my verbal tics and ADHD a little better (I'm also on meds for anxiety and depression so I'm not to worried about that, OCD too but I'm nervous about it) but my motor tics are awful and even though I can suppress them more, my verbal tics are still very noticeable. And then there's the whole deal with selective mutism. I still can't talk on the phone or talk to complete strangers, andin highschool thats going to be a BIG problem. I don't know anyone going into my school because we also just moved (to virginia) PKEASE HELP!
