More like what I don't want, I've got it. It's a new tic, a rather silly vocal tic that's come about from watching The Flight Of The Conchords, as an extra onj the DVD of the second series theres some adverts for Dave's pawn shop, the Conchord's best friend in New York. These adverts are one of the funniest things I've seen, but after a few days it's getting a bit waring shouting "What you want, we got it!" just like Dave's Indian dad. It's a rather unfortunate tic to be shouting in my village shop which is run by 2 SriLankan brothers who I would never want to offend, luckily they've got used to me shouting whilst picking up a loaf of bread, but still, I'd just hate to upset them they're lovely guys.
The Habit Reversal Training was going quite well, so I thought, well so my therapist and consultant told me, but maybe it's just me, I can be a bit of a perfectionist and when I achieve, I like to achieve well. So it was a bit of a blow to the ego (or maybe I just shouldn't have listened to him) when I was having a conversation with my partner's brother about my TS and my HRT, He incidently has a throat clearing tic. He says to me that he can't see any difference at all in my tics and that I have a long way to go and wondered why that I still shout out "P"£$ OFF" I told him that that was like him clearing his throat, "No, not at all, it embaresses me but at least I don't offend anyone" "Surely if I can stop ticcing, you can stop shouting" (Whatever) I told him about his neice, the one who avoids me having contact with her 5 year old son, who also told me that if there was a kid with TS in his class she would have him removed. You would think that a young mum like her (she's 29) would be a bit more forward thinking, but my brother in-law basically said the same, if he had a young child he wouldn't want them to have much contact with me or anyone else with TS, regardless of their age. Why is it when you hear the phrase "no offense but.." you know that someone's going to say something really hurtfull that goes agaist your core beliefs. I'm quite glad that she didn't turn up to the open mic nite that I organised last October. Another reason why I'm feeling somewhat deflated is that my better half has started to get anoyed with my tics yet again, there I am trying my best not to shout so I settle for the happy medium of letting out my whistling tic whilst we go about our buisness in Bedworth. "Shut up! Stop doing that!" me thinks he's embarrassing himself. Maybe I'll watch some more Flight of the Conchords, that might cheer me up.
Here's Dave's advert.
