    • *12 minutes with shy, submissive self conscious cabbie with PTSD* | *LADbible* . So it all started with Anita hailing a ride in my cab.. few years back. . She said... do not slam the brakes if you hear me blurt 'cats'.. because that's merely a Tourette's thingy. . We are cruising fine for 10 minutes.. and i hear CATS!!!! i do not take much notice as i remember Anita's heads up. . But Anita tells ..stop the effin' car.. you just ran over a family of kittens and their mum🐺. . so yeah.. that is the story of my PTSD. I went through the trsuma, the pain... but i do not hold it agsinst Anita anymore!

    • I wonder if Anita is aware the psilocybin the psycho active compound found in hallucinogenic mushrooms has been found in doing what one might call a system reset. Paul Stamets, a leading authority in the world of mycology suffered from a bad stuttering problem and discovered after a trip on mushrooms as a late teen that it had almost performed a system reset, and from there on out Paul barely stuttered again......

  • I'm relieved to have found this. I have watched a ton of her YT vids. I think one of the last ones I seen was her talking about her stalker. Even though sub'd to her channel I hadn't seen new content (Thx YT). I was concerned that she went into recluse mode because of this (or worse). Good to know it is just YT, being YT!

  • I have Tourette's and got diagnosed when I was 10. I now turn 30 this year and having this diagnose has had an huge impact on my life. It's been hard, it's been cruel. I lost all my friends I had and I was really popular before it started to notice on me. I closed myself down and didn't wanna go to school and my grades just went down the drain. I didn't wanna talk to anyone and just played video games my whole youth without any friends (except those online) and super depressed. When I started to get more mature and older I got tired of doing nothing about it and hiding myself from the world. So I started to learn how to control it and it is now a lot better, I don't have any tics when I hang out with my friends or when I'm at work, just a few small ones here and there which I hide pretty good, when I'm home alone and when I'm around family they show much more but I try everyday to fight it and reduce them. It is very tiring to have this constant struggle with yourself but it is possible to learn how to control it in certain situations or at least change your tics to less visible and less more annoying tics. Tourette's is a horrible diagnose and can really destroy a human being but there are ways to help you but it's not gonna be easy. There is a lot more diagnoses out there and many people struggle with their lives everyday because of them. So please be kind, understanding and helpful towards other humans that you may know or not know have mental disabilities and for those having these issues don't give up, don't give in, fight hard and things will get better with time and effort.

  • Surely, if someone has those same kinds of tics consistently, in the middle of sentences, and is clearly distressed by them; SURELY a medical professional would know that there was more to it than just "attention seeking"? I'm not saying I don't believe she wasn't helped, I'm just in awe at how unprofessional the doctors she went to were.

  • This was a very good interview. My best friend had Tourette's. I called him boogie brother. When I first met him he wore a coat in the summer. I asked him why and he said because he was fat. I told him more people will look at you with a coat on in the summer than if you are fat. I finally got him to get rid of his coat. We would be in stores and he would whistle at girls. He never swore but would say things like man she is hot....etc. I never let the tourette's get in the way of us being friends. He would do things with his hand and mouth and blow on his hand and twitch. I know at one point he was on Meds but it really didn't help and he hated it. As we both grew older I noticed less of his ticking. Maybe I was just use to it but really it seem to lesson. He ended up getting by pass surgery for his weight, he lost a lot of weight and then began to gain it again but it was not as bad. He ended up getting a girl friend and we began to see less of each other. I was married this whole time and missed his friendship and then all of a sudden we heard he died. We still really do not know what happened but heard it was related to his by pass surgery. I found Anita on Twitch and instantly was very curious about her. She is very intelligent and that is why I enjoy seeing her. I wish I could interact with her. She seems awesome like my friend.

  • I wants her to make a stastistical analysis of the individual Tourette behaviours. Make a whistle channel, pop channel, aha channel, make an impulse every time it occurs, blur then with a Gaussian blur and then take the resulting numbers and correlate with discussed matter, current emotion and stuff. Maybe it will turn out individual behaviours have a particular meaning!

    Charlie AngkorCharlie Angkor2 päivää sitten
  • Interesting how the Tourette goes up when she talks about emotionally painful things. So maybe she could use it as a sort of extra channel, an additional emotional dimension which other don't have? Someone should program something that would detect all her whistles pops and hahas and count them and show a number like what is the current strength.

  • The best way one could describe the tics that come with Tourette's is that when the tics come on, they are not involuntary. It's like a very strong urge which feels almost like it'll drive you crazy if you don't go through with expressing the tic, and it can take any form. It can be suppressed but takes real willpower. I know this much because someone I am close to has Tourette's Syndrome.
