All of us with Tourette's Syndrome know how loud vocal tics can effect your everyday life. They surprise us at moments when we need to be silent; they shout out the most awful things in the most embarrassing situations. For the last couple of weeks I have really tried to suppress my vocal tics, this has caused more motor tics. My neck tic has been more violent; my facial grimaces hurt my face and the whole movement cycle has now caused my back to seize up!
So, now I am stuck at home in the most awful pain..................For me, I think I prefer the embarrassing loud vocal tics than the painful effects of the motor tics!
