As a said before in the previous post It always amazes me to see a little three or four year old me ticcing! It also amazes me looking back on these videos that my parents really thought I just had bad habits that they needed to force me to break and never took me to a doctor or psychologist as a kid. I kept ticcing throughout my childhood though and still of course tic today a lot regardless of my parents telling me to stop ticcing. Telling a child to stop ticcing does not help! It only makes things worse for the child! Tourette's Syndrome is a neurological disorder and cannot be stopped by pure will.
I know my mom recognized I was doing something out of the ordinary because once she realizes what I am doing she quickly turns off the camera and the video switches to a video of my brother as a baby. I had echolalia throughout my childhood where I would repeat my own words and the words or phrases of others and still have it today although it doesn't happen as frequently now as it used to when I was younger.
