What do covid tests feel like? I have social anxiety and I’m worried something bad will happen or I’ll make a random noise again. Help?

I've had a few and I don't find them to bad and I have a very low pain tolerance and hate doing stuff like that. I've always do it myself or had my mum do it (I'm 21 and still have her do it). The throat one is like a tickle in your throat and the nose one it like pressure as you have to put it until you feel pressure. It's uncomfortable but not painful. It makes you feel like you need to sneeze 😂. Nothing bad will happen from the test I could promise you that. Are you looking at getting one done?

Is it a school one? Is there anyone you can have there who you trust maybe your 3 people could be people you really trust? Don't worry about a noise. They'll of heard so many noises then people do Covid tests. I'm sorry if this isn't useful. I don't know know tics work exactly but maybe you could sing a song sometimes that works for some people I've seen on tiktok? I'm sorry and don't feel very useful 😂

No, I don’t talk to anyone. It’s teachers at school watching.

Do you have any teachers you connect with more than others?

No
Do you have any way of trying to divert the tics? Like a distraction you can try to use? Is a teacher aloud to do it for you? (I find it's quicker when my mum does it)

Not that I know of. I might try to remember facts of my special interest.

Yeah try anything. It only last about 2-3 minutes so anything to help you get through that. And honestly don't worry about any noises. They know you have tics and that it happens and you can't help it. They're there not to judge you. You can do it!! I believe in you💗
