My Falling Tic is Back

So my falling tic is back again.....but this time it's back with a vengeance. I've never really had the tic this bad. All this morning I was dropping to the ground suddenly and forcefully and quite a few times I laid on the ground for a minute or so afterwards unable to move. I also scratched up my knees a bit this morning as well as a result.

In the afternoon I went back to campus to return my books and to see my friend since she's staying an extra two days. We decided to get get lunch at the zoo and walk around afterwards. I decided to give her a heads up that my falling tic was back, especially since she's never seen that tic before. She's really used to my tics overall since I spend a lot of time with her and is pretty great about them.

When I told her about that tic she said she thinks it would be cute. I laughed at that and said not really! It hurts!!

Overall at the zoo I dropped to the ground about 4 or 5 times. Each time I managed to get back up pretty quickly but it did hurt! The first time I did it, my friend said it actually was cute because it looked like I just decided to sit down on the ground really fast. The second and third time she looked back and asked if I was okay and I assured her I was.

Overall by the end of our zoo trip, my hands hurt from catching myself and my knees are a bit sore, but no big scrapes or bruises yet luckily.

Anyway, i don't know how long this tic will stay with me but it's a rough one. Hopefully it will go away soon.


  1. I have a "fainting" tic right now, so I feel your pain with this!

  2. Ugh I have pretty much the same tic and often scrape my already scraped knees. Not as bad as when I hit my leg though
