Yes, you read that right. Homework might be horrible, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t an upside to it as well. For example, you have the excuse to go to your room and be alone for hours on end and can let your tics out as much as you want because no one else can see you or — especially if everyone else is downstairs watching TV — hear you.
So doing your homework can end up being something you look forward to doing. But not always. Why the sudden change in opinion, you ask? Well, it’s not exactly a change in opinion. It’s more that there are also bad things about Tourette and homework.
For example, you might be able to tic all you want, but the more you tic, the less you get done, and I’m sure most of you know that once you start to tic it is very hard to stop because it uses A LOT of energy.
If I’m honest, which I’ll always be in these posts, I’m actually supposed to be doing my Religious Studies homework on how someone could apply “Right Livelihood” to their lives (from Buddhism, of course) right now. What make’s it worse is it is due tomorrow and I haven’t got a clue what I am supposed to do. But I guess that’s why the Internet was made. ;)
And also what I might as well mention in this is that my tics have been getting worse lately, and whereas I can usually hold some of them in and/or disguise them, now it takes all my energy just to suppress them through one lesson at school. Can you guys believe that they don’t even give me somewhere I can go to let my tics out?
Speaking of somewhere to go, there isn’t even somewhere I can take tests separately anymore, so I have definately failed my German writing test, as we were supposed to write 150 words and I only managed to get down 69 words AND my teacher “forgot” to give me extra time. :(
I know at this point I have somewhat rambled on, but this can be used as a bit of insight into doing homework with Tourette and a small update of what’s been happening recently for me. And, yes, this was a kind of an out-of-the-blue thing. :)
