I came back a little while ago from a Sushi dinner with my family which we had together as a celebration of everyone's hard work during the school year. While waiting for our table, my brother and I sat down on a bench facing some tables. I immediately noticed a very pretty young lady in her mid 20's probably who was ticcing!!! She was doing some of the exact same eye tics that I do. Hard squinting and eye rolling. At first I thought maybe she just got something in her eye but as a I sat there for about 15 minutes waiting for a table, I noticed that she did it repetitively and frequently. She was definitely ticcing!
She was out to dinner with a friend and they were talking and looked like they were having a great time! I wanted to go up to her so bad and say "I have tics too!!!" and strike up a conversation with her but I of course held myself back, lol. She looked so sophisticated, looked like she was having a great time, and of course the friend who she was out with seemed totally used to her tics and okay with them. I admired her self-confidence and self-assurance from a far. It always encourages me so much to see this! To see someone who is sophisticated, mature, and out for a special night with a friend having a great time, tics and all. Just wanted to share this moment with you all
