Does anyone else have this?

When I say ticks, they only look like them to the observer because I manage to stop myself speaking so it seems like a random noise.

It's like the thoughts in my head, that belong to the others I am co-conscious with, get muddled with mine and I say what they are thinking. This often makes no sense or is disjointed. It's weird though 'cos I can think stuff myself and I don't get the compulsion to say it (or shout it, as is often the case) as strongly as I do the other's thoughts. It's like dissociative Tourettes, although I don't think I have Tourettes.

I don't know, I just thought I would post this as it happened at the cinema the other day and I was thinking about it. :shrug:

Google says it's quite common in Schizophrenia.

I am diagnosed as a voice hearer, but am still confused about it all.

I sometimes get tics that are like twitches of my mouth or eye.
Sometimes my face contorts on one side
No speaking though.

It happens when I am upset or anxious. It is sometimes a precursor to misery, self-harm and other risky behaviour.
