Thisis so true for me. FYI....I discoverd that Ihad TS at age 31. I am now almost 44. * 1/2 years ago, I left a job at an assembly line plant to work as a custodian with a city. I went from working with over 100 people to about a dozen. Within 5 months of getting my new jhob, I was working a night shift 9pm - 6am ALONE! And my tics diminished GREATLY. Now 8 1/2 years later since I got that job, I seldom ever have a vocal tic and my motor tics are miniscule facial or stuttering, or echoe's. And I take NO meds.
Really great to hear how well you're doing. :)
It's a weird thing though. Sometimes people tic more when they're relaxed then when they're stressed. So many factors involved.
I recall being at the TSA-USA Conference in DC in 1998. Massive rooms filled with people involved with the TS community. I reckon people were ticing more because they were more relaxed. They could do so without feeling observed. Without feeling out of place. It reminds me of the classroom, where children may feel the need and pressure to hold onto their tics all day and then explode when the bell rings and they get home where they can just be themselves.
