The search for stillness has escalated. My chest is so bruised and sore at the moment that I have to find a way to stop myself banging it. I went out at lunchtime and bought some elbow supports and I’ve put one on each arm – back to front. I’m hoping this will interrupt the action of the tic by preventing me from bending my arm and stopping my fist from reaching my chest.
This means I can’t bend my arms for any other reason either.
