    • *12 minutes with shy, submissive self conscious cabbie with PTSD* | *LADbible* . So it all started with Anita hailing a ride in my cab.. few years back. . She said... do not slam the brakes if you hear me blurt 'cats'.. because that's merely a Tourette's thingy. . We are cruising fine for 10 minutes.. and i hear CATS!!!! i do not take much notice as i remember Anita's heads up. . But Anita tells ..stop the effin' car.. you just ran over a family of kittens and their mum🐺. . so yeah.. that is the story of my PTSD. I went through the trsuma, the pain... but i do not hold it agsinst Anita anymore!

    • I wonder if Anita is aware the psilocybin the psycho active compound found in hallucinogenic mushrooms has been found in doing what one might call a system reset. Paul Stamets, a leading authority in the world of mycology suffered from a bad stuttering problem and discovered after a trip on mushrooms as a late teen that it had almost performed a system reset, and from there on out Paul barely stuttered again......

  • You have to be one of bravest, smartest, and most sensitively intelligent people I have ever seen speaking seriously on FIstream. Thank you for educating the masses about living your life with a medical condition. So very happy to see you are content. Best Wishes.

  • I wants her to make a stastistical analysis of the individual Tourette behaviours. Make a whistle channel, pop channel, aha channel, make an impulse every time it occurs, blur then with a Gaussian blur and then take the resulting numbers and correlate with discussed matter, current emotion and stuff. Maybe it will turn out individual behaviours have a particular meaning!

  • Interesting how the Tourette goes up when she talks about emotionally painful things. So maybe she could use it as a sort of extra channel, an additional emotional dimension which other don't have? Someone should program something that would detect all her whistles pops and hahas and count them and show a number like what is the current strength.

  • So helpful to see this. We can all easily understand this person and would accommodate her Tourette's without a second thought. What about people who are more marginally affected by apparent behavioural issues? Why do we condemn them so easily? She exposes our hypocrisy.

  • The best way one could describe the tics that come with Tourette's is that when the tics come on, they are not involuntary. It's like a very strong urge which feels almost like it'll drive you crazy if you don't go through with expressing the tic, and it can take any form. It can be suppressed but takes real willpower. I know this much because someone I am close to has Tourette's Syndrome.

  • I have Tourette’s Syndrome too. I feel terrible because I was diagnosed at such a young age and my mom was in the pharmaceutical industry and had connections to some amazing Psychiatrists. I never had many verbal ticks it was only shoulder shrugging, throat clearing and obsessive thoughts. I feel her pain because until I went the the psychiatrist so many doctors would assume I had ADHD or something completely different it still took a long time to dial in. At 8 years old I was prescribed Abilify and it actually helped to change my brain chemistry as I matured to the point where my ticks are so masked no one ever notices and I don’t tell people that I have Tourette’s anymore. What an amazing and beautiful woman.

  • She is so sweet, it is the first time I have ever heard of this syndrome, but I think once you know about it, the people having it have nothing to worry about. Maybe it is tiresome to explain it 10 times a day, but once most of the people you spend your time with are aware, it is all uphill from there :) lovely and brave open minded sweet girl. I wish her all the best :)

  • No idea how I came across this video but so so glad I did. She seems such a wonderful person. And just the thought of what she's experienced in her past makes me feel ashamed of having ever complained about anything in my life. Hats off to her for having found her way in life and for keeping smiling.

  • La chiarezza della nostra posizione è evidente: il percorso innovativo che abbiamo scelto presuppone modalità autonome per attuare la tempestiva esecuzione del super task. Ecco un vivido esempio delle tendenze moderne: il rafforzamento e lo sviluppo della struttura interna contribuisce alla preparazione e all'implementazione del progresso della comunità professionale.L'alto livello di coinvolgimento dei rappresentanti del pubblico di riferimento è una chiara dimostrazione di un fatto semplice: la crescita quantitativa costante e l'ambito della nostra attività predeterminano l'elevata domanda di prelievo di attività correnti. Signori, il vettore di base dello sviluppo richiede un'analisi delle prospettive favorevoli.! No ambito da especificacao de padroes modernos, replicados de fontes estrangeiras, a pesquisa moderna e apenas um metodo de participacao politica e e funcionalmente dividida em elementos independentes. Em primeiro lugar, o desenvolvimento posterior de varias formas de atividade cria as pre-condicoes para um modelo de desenvolvimento.Tendo em conta os indicadores de sucesso, a solidariedade da equipa de profissionais e uma etapa qualitativamente nova na distribuicao das reservas e recursos internos. Nao se deve esquecer, porem, que a teoria existente nos permite realizar tarefas importantes no desenvolvimento de perspectivas favoraveis.

  • I only know one person with tourettes, they dont happen often but I can tell you now they arent actually that distracting. If someone tries to say they're distracting or bad then they're probably just an asshole (they could just be easily distracted but still, complaining about it like the person with tourettes cant control it is rude).
