    Mass hysteria, I really think the more these kids watch these videos the more they think they also have “tics”.

    Stutter or disarticulation is also considered to be a kinda " tic " which I heard it from a medical professor. I've seen some people who are suffering from stutter in the workplace and I also had been in the same situation when I was young but It just disappeared when I grew up. There are SOME precipitating factors that could lead to causing stutter worse based on my experience. Surprisingly, you will see " some people who feel comfortable talking to their peers or a person who understand their struggle " make them feel relax and become " smooth " while talking. It is strange 😊, isn't it !! I would also love to share my experience and the tips which might somehow releive your sufferings. Please share, if you also have experienced that sort of tics before. Be confident and stay strong With Loads of love

    Good. Maybe now, finally, there can be some awareness for Tourette's syndrome raised, as well as funds and research? There's only 3 medicines to help with tourette's, and none of them actually prevent the issue because there's not been any significant research done. I was diagnosed with tourette's when I was 6, and I've had to live with it my entire life, watching everyone worry and raise awareness about autism and depression, and there's still not even a free group for tourette's support anywhere close to me. Come on! Research Tourette's now, figure out why my brain is making my body do things I can't control.

    Stress of the world. You watch people on TV and many of them have nervous ticks before and after interviews and news articles both people doing the interview and being interviewed. Watch people on a bus and many of them are ticking away when they think no one is watching. Many teenagers have always had them as a result of feet nervous and both boys and girls. Our world today demands stressed out people with pressures to be what they aren’t.
