The 2009 Tourette's/Asperger's End of Year Report
I have been charting my tics this year in order to try and find a way of making them more manageable. What I have found is that in order to minimise the really aggressive tics, I should pay attention to my emotional state as it pertains to the environment.
The more angry I get at seemingly trivial things, the more I need to vanish into a dark room and sit on my own. The following day I will have a tic day but they will be less aggressive (I won't be hitting myself and falling over so much).
It's taken a bloody year to figure that out!!

The physical effects of prolonged unpredictability on my Aspergery self.
Autism, Tourette's and: The People Quota
