As part of my Habit Reversal Therapy (HRT) I’ve got a set of exercises to practice many times every day. My therapist suggested doing them at times when my tics are bad, and even doing things that I know make them worse.
Leftwing Idiot and I watched the Green Hornet this evening. Normally films with any action or suspense send my tics wild and I was planning to do loads of practising while the film was on, but to my surprise there were only a couple of times when my tics got more extreme. I was able to stay much calmer than I’d expected but I don’t know if this is a sign that HRT is paying off or just that the film wasn’t very exciting.
