Sometimes I think Tourette Syndrome is like having a pet mogwai.
It pops up at times and mostly it’s just this cool little guy that you hang out with when you’re stressed.
But sometimes, when in a social situation, it pops up and suddenly it’s a gremlin. Making you tic and spazz out super hard.
You can explain but most people don’t get it and end up walking away confused.
Sometimes other people have their own gremlins, like depression and they understand. But mostly people don’t get it.
For all it’s crappy socialness though, I think I’d keep it even if I had been given the choice.
It’s been there my whole life. Making me smarter. Making me work harder. Helping me be more creative and giving me ideas.
Really I actually like my mogwai. I just wish it didn’t react to social situations like they were food after midnight.
