uh hi, so. for a few- like 2 ish years now- I've had these motor(physical) and verbal tics. I've gotten good at masking (suppressing) especially around my parents, I don't have the best household and my parents are very critical especially when it comes to problems I'm having or concerns I have with my own health. this includes broken bones, mental health, hurting myself, panic attacks, my genetic knee disorder, etc. they always feel the need to second guess me, say I'm overreacting, call me a drama queen, laugh at me, so so. this even happens with my psychiatrist: I was concerned I was suffering from dermatillomania (chronic skin picking: spoiler i am) and she laughed at me. but that's not the point. my point is that for a while now i have been concerned that i have tourettes, and my tics are becoming harder to control, predict, and suppress. im almost certain that if i try and tell my parents, they would laugh and say they have never seen the tics so i'm lying and if i told them that i've been hiding them, they would criticize me for not trusting them and make the whole situation about them, and them being the victim. and if i told my psych, she would prolly laugh at me, and then notify my parents of what i said ;-; i just don't know what to do. these tics have been getting worse over the year of 2020 and they are becoming more painful, violent, and distressing. i don't know what to do.
