Tourette’s + Kandi (Bored Post)

carousel_albany 2/22/2021 11:18 am 536

I have Tourette’s. For people who don’t know what Tourette’s is it’s a medical condition that causes me to make loud sounds, have twitches, and say things. These are called tics. I love making Kandi because I really have to focus on my project and it calms the tics momentarily. Does anyone else here have Tourette’s

I don't have Tourettes, but I do have ADHD, and I can understand the whole tic thing. I clap randomly and scream a lot.

I have minor tourretes bu ti wouldnt consider it as intense as most people with tourretes. I have neck twitches and constant leg twitches but they are most likely nervous reactions exept my leg one that happens no matter waht.

yep! tourette's here too! crafting calms them but doesn't stop them usually.

@xxxinsomniacxxx: sometimes making kandi can calm them down though, espically if im in my room alone, but often they still stay there and can get in the way sad

@xxxinsomniacxxx: yes!!! ive dropped untied bracelets, grabbed the wrong color, and one time even dropped a whole unclosed bead holder. they do often get in the way sad

ive been diagnosed and on meds for years!! dont have any extreme tics rn, always mostly been facial or minor twitches. sometimes its super hard to focus on the beads though cuz my eyes keep shutting jdfknsskdf

I don't but I have severe tics in my hands and face and general torso. I also have some nerve damage in one of my hands and I use kandi to try and get better at fine motor. Though I spill beads all the time.
