As a member of the TS ‘family’ (no diagnosis but my sons have) – I am sometimes very direct in my speech – probably due to speech processing difficulties / stammering. This can come over as being abrupt or even aggressive. Is this a recognised part of TS? It can cause serious problems in social interactions.
