This an annual stress of mine but this last year and this one to come it's going to be alot more than once a year
I have to travel up to Liverpool, by rail, from the South Coast tommorrow
Most times I have to book in advance but not always
Anyway I normally go via London and catch the Virgin Trains
from Euston. Thier trains are like horrible cylinders and all dark red and hot and everyone looks well miz on them
Because I couldn't book the seat I wanted I'm having to go cross-country changing hither and thither but at least the trains are more spacious than Virgin's
I stress out for ages because I have to have a particular spot on the train and it's called an airline gangway seat
My tics are mostly on my left side; I'm constantly looking to my left; I have a left arm/elbow tic; left leg tic...you get the picture
I can't sit for hours on end facing some miserable sour-faced party-poopers staring at me wondering wtf is going on....even though I'm smiling and at first try to them
So I have to have an 'airline seat which faces the back of the seat in fronnt.
I have to have the aisle to my left esle Ill be nudging the person next to me ther whole journey and I can't sit on the left hand side of the train next to the window (which would ordinarily sort ot the left side tic problem) but as I'm a bit claustro it makes me tic even more with the feeling of being trapped
What a palava - why can't I just go away for the weekend like everybody else!
Oh yeah, I've got Tourette's
Could be worse I suppose eh
