    Hi, I do have verbal tics but not the swearing kind (which is called coprolalia). I'm also lucky because I don't shout in any of tic outburts, I tend to whisper so no one really hears me

    So I have definitely ticced in mosques before but no rude outbursts, sorry to burst your bubble!

    What is your most common outburst?
    You mean speech related? Well the majority of my tics are movements so I jerk my head and shoulder around a lot.

    Speech wise my biggest tic is that I repeat what I say without meaning to, so I might say to someone "thanks" for handing me the remote or something, and then I start repeating "thanks" about 20 times without realising it. Gets awkward at times because people who see me think I'm talking to myself :lol:

    It's okay, I don't really need any sympathy (but I appreciate the sentiment!)

    As an adult, Tourettes has a very minimal effect on my life. I've had it for the past 17 years so I'm very much used to it! Also I'm very, very good at hiding it so if you met me you would never know I had Tourettes. In fact I have friends that I've known for over 10 years who don't know!

    However when I was a child, Tourettes made my life a living hell. I have lots of dark and depressing memories of when I was aged between 3-14. After 14 it got much better.

    Lol Amood isn't even a real name so that joke is a bit of a fail I did chuckle a bit though.

    Nope, not really my thing. I don't see why having Tourettes makes someone undateable anyway (or any other condition for that matter)
