What tics do you have?

Some of my tics were eye blinking, facial grimaces, jerking head to one side or the other, sniffling, coughing, clearing throat, shoulder shruggs, and rolling my stomach.



Did you get bullied or teased as a child?

I was teased as a kid. They called me names like 'snorky' and 'spaz'. Other kids would also mimmic my tics.



How did you handle the teasing?

I didn't react very much because I didn't know why I did these things. I would usually just walk away or ignore them, and try to avoid those situations the best I could.
