Life is an exciting journey, especially with tics

Hello everyone! Happy August! Next week, I’ll be signing up for the courses I need for senior year. I can’t believe it’s finally here! I’m already getting ready for the colleges that I’ll need to audition for and everything. Life is a journey, and mine is just beginning.

My tics have been pretty high on the tic-o-meter lately. I have to squeeze things all the time now. It is quite annoying. And I also have to shout at the top of my lungs. It’s not comfortable, but I’m trying to cope with it. How are your tics doing? What has your summer been like? Hope you all have a great one!




  1. What do you think the biggest adjustment will have to be once you get to college? I’m worried about test taking and being kicked out of class for making the noises that my tics cause.

    • Hey, Bobby! I am trying to get into acting college. I will have to tell them that I have TS. The biggest adjustment will have to be not only living on my own but being doing things out of my comfort zone. I have social anxiety, and that plus TS is not a good combination. However, I know it will get better after I get used to it. I’ve been working on being out of my comfort zone for quite some time. I’ve made a lot of progress. The good things is that the only test taking I would be doing is showing what I’ve learned in acting. But, that’s still pretty intense for me. I think you’ll do great in college. You just have to believe in yourself and keep moving forward. :)
