Several times a day my tics intensify and I completely lose control of my body and speech. I call these episodes ‘ticcing fits’ because they look seizure-like and need similar management.
Whenever they happen my support worker makes a note of the start and end time on a sheet so we have a record of when each one occurred.
I just saw my fit sheet from yesterday and it made me laugh. It seemed to be written as a riddle:
Touretteshero had a six-minute fit at 6.28am, five hours later she had another which started at 6.45am.
There’s a prize for the first person who comes up with the correct explanation for this.
