I’ve written recently about how frequently I’m dropping to the floor, and how this is making getting about difficult. Most tics are rapid movements, but what’s unusual about this one is that I’m finding it difficult to get out of it independently.
This tic seems to involve a very quick movement to start with, sometimes followed by a more sustained movement that twists my body into the ground.
Tonight, at the lair on my own, I dropped down and ended up on the floor. I found it very tricky to get up, because of a series of rapidly repeating movements that meant I was wiggling about all over the place and couldn’t get up safely. I used the exercises I’d learnt in Habit Reversal Therapy to try and re-establish control but it still took well over ten minutes for me to get up.
