    • *12 minutes with shy, submissive self conscious cabbie with PTSD* | *LADbible* . So it all started with Anita hailing a ride in my cab.. few years back. . She said... do not slam the brakes if you hear me blurt 'cats'.. because that's merely a Tourette's thingy. . We are cruising fine for 10 minutes.. and i hear CATS!!!! i do not take much notice as i remember Anita's heads up. . But Anita tells ..stop the effin' car.. you just ran over a family of kittens and their mum🐺. . so yeah.. that is the story of my PTSD. I went through the trsuma, the pain... but i do not hold it agsinst Anita anymore!

    • I wonder if Anita is aware the psilocybin the psycho active compound found in hallucinogenic mushrooms has been found in doing what one might call a system reset. Paul Stamets, a leading authority in the world of mycology suffered from a bad stuttering problem and discovered after a trip on mushrooms as a late teen that it had almost performed a system reset, and from there on out Paul barely stuttered again......

  • as someone who grew up with Tourette's in the American school system it's a rough rap to beat. i fought through being labeled emotionally disturbed and shuffled through special education classes and alternative schools not for any learning issues but because i was "a distraction to children" or they "didn't know how to deal with me." it has taken me decades to realize that there's nothing wrong with me, it's everyone else around me who can't adapt.

  • as a boy with Tourette's, this video makes me unbelievably happy not only because I'm able to relate to it with passion, but because it lets me know that there are other people out there that struggle with this disorder. I was diagnosed with it at around 7 or 8 years old and all I can say is that making friends and socializing is incredibly difficult. Every person I have met that has this disorder is the most kind hearted, understanding person you'll ever meet. I think that's because they've been so hurt and mistreated by people and don't want to inflict that on others and that doesn't just apply for Tourette's. If you ever meet someone with Tourette's, please just be understanding and empathetic with them, they will like you immediately, trust me.

  • I don't know who she is, and I won't claim to now be her best friend after watching a couple of videos of her.. However, she seems very nice and sweet. She's very eloquent when talking about her diagnosis. She seems to have a great sense of humor as well. I'm always curious about different conditions in humans, as I myself have asberger's syndrome, so I find it really interesting to hear her talk about it. 🙂

    • -I have never heard of this Tourette's syndrome in all my 43 years. I have a syndrome that even my best friends don't know about. I would rather it that way. But if i had this "Tourette's" their would be no way for me to hide it. I think Anita does really well in the way she handles this. Not sure i could do nearly as well. I watched all 11:43 minutes of her video and think she is a super cool person and i,am sure Anita could teach me a few things about my own syndrome,,,I would for sure tell her but no one else. Still at odd's why i never heard of this before. I,am guessing this must be a very rare syndrome?

  • I knew when she was going to have a tick or noise because I do the same thing. Just watching her I can feel when she was going to do it. It’s a tough thing to go through! My nickname was blinkers when I was a teen. Embarrassing! In my opinion a huge dose of anxiety may also cause the ticks and the rolling b’s and machine gun noises. 😊

  • So until she got a piece of paper that says "you have tourettes" she couldn't start her life? Idk. I think she's has far more control over her tics then she claims.

    Mom Look!Mom Look!Päivä sitten
    • Certain tics are triggered during stressful episodes. Having a diagnosis, in a way, probably did give her more control because she then knew she could get the help she needs and explain to people why she is the way she is. Why do you go to the doctor? Don't you always come out feeling better when you know what the issue is because you can then treat it? Idk, what we think of her condition is inferior and if people have nothing but kind words for her, they should just stay silent.

  • I was misdiagnosed with Tourettes as a young boy, I was later when I was properly diagnosed with Aspergers aka ASD in 1996. And it both angers and saddens me that as my male contemporaries for both Tourettes and Autism they find it very quickly, wheras our female contemporaries...not as much. And Anita says here, it took her into her adult life to find out she has Tourettes. I was 16(thereabouts)when I got my true DX. In my opinion, that is not ok with that BIG divide of age(and maybe gender)gap. She's a pretty awesome gamer woman. And a awesome human being too. This world is fortunate to have kind souls as her on this spinning blue marble we call home.

  • Idk how it happened. I looked up Among Us a couple of times because I wanted to learn the game better before trying it (still never played). That got me familiar with many of the big streamers. Corpse Husband mentioned Anita when they played together in a match. Within a few weeks, Sweet Anita was suggested by FIboth. I watched several of her videos and started to learn her story. Im really glad her publicity is blowing up. She's an amazing person (from what I've seen) and im glad she's trying to break stigma around mental health. Plus there's some hilarity to watch her Tourette's tell off simps in her chat to then be followed up by her Tourette's saying it's not a tic and she means it. So glad she's bringing more social acceptance to it.
