More tics

I don’t know if it’s the weather, the time of year or a step closer to puberty, but K-Oz has really been exhibiting increased tics lately.

His facial tics have really increased and his verbal tics are ramped up also. He’s been saying a lot of “huh-huh” and clearing his throat. His facial tics are mostly exaggerated grimaces and the like.

In addition, he has increased some of his physical tics. His most common physical tic right now is shuffling his feet. He will shuffle his feet several times before taking another step.

I find myself wondering if puberty will make his TS worse or alleviate it a bit. I also wonder if he will outgrow it or live with it forever.

Only God knows.
