    I've had tics ever since I was 10. The only tic I had was tilt my head to a side, but then it got worst: Applauses, saying "no" with my head, move my hip to the right, making sneeze, pidgeon and donkey sounds, blowing a raspberry, saying worlds (sometimes gibberish, sometimes real words)...

    Hi everyone I had posted the thread "Mental Issues - approaching the opposite sex" pretty much exactly a year ago, and I got some good advice from seemingly good people. I have since then seen a psychologist who recognised motor tic disorder, dismissed Tourettes, diagnosed social anxiety and...
