It is said that, when we reach adulthood, we should see a decrease in the symptoms. But we sometimes see adults with many visible tics. The reality is that as an adult with TS, we have to manage many extra challenges since we need to embrace the various sides of adult life: find a job? Find love? Familial relations?
Each situation brings its load of challenges. To face those issues, we need to be able to understand the situation. The lack of inhibition, reactivity, hypersensitivity, organizational challenges and adaptation vulnerabilities may trigger conflicts, sometimes insidious, that are difficult to solve if we haven’t already started a meaningful acceptance process.
