I’ve often considered joining some kind of social group or support group for people and families with TS. I love meeting new people, and it would be interesting to meet other people living with the same challenges that I do.
However, it has been shown that tics tend to feed off of each other, and I remember reading about a family with multiple children with Tourette and the kids’ tics would be so much worse when they were all in a room together.
I have even noticed that my tics get worse when I am around another person with a tic, whether or not that person has TS. So I question whether it would be a good idea for me to walk into a room full of people with tics! Has anyone ever visited such a group or experienced a similar problem?
