TS and your kids...
I've had the same thing with feeling more at ease about the tics after the diagnosis. I used to hide them even from my family, and would spend an hour or more at a time in the bathroom to let them out when the stress was killing me.
Now that they all know it's TS (and I don't think I might be crazy any more), I don't feel like I have to hide the tics. And as a result I'm being accused of not trying hard enough, and my husband claims that my TS and AS symptoms got much worse after diagnosis, which shows (he claims) that it's psychological, and I'm mentally ill.
I know he is wrong, and I refuse to pretend I am like other people in my own house now, I should be able to relax at home! Most of my kids just ignore my tics now, but a couple of them will still get annoyed and tell me to stop at times (I have five kids).
