Hi, my name is Nicole and I have Tourette Syndrome. My journey started at 7 years old. I’ve had tics since then, and it was played off as anxiety. Recently, this year actually, I was diagnosed officially with tourettes.
I’m 15 now, and I’m still suffering with TS.
my tics include:
falling to the floor
jerking head around
and several more, but i don’t wanna trigger anyone any further.
END OF TRIGGER WARNING SECTION
My friends and family have thankfully been very supportive of me and my tics, and do everything they can to help. Currently, i need to wear wrist braces. I wear one on each wrist.
These protect me from my self harming tics.
Make up is difficult to do, but I get through it. I just focus really well and it usually works. That’s a tip for tics, if you’re focused, they can go away for a bit (at least for me)
I’ve made a video, and all 4 parts are on my Youtube channel, Autumn Leaves Please (the profile picture is the ts ribbon). the full video is also linked in my instagram bio @ticcy.nikki
Thank you for taking the time to hear my story!
