Stomping may seem like an angry reaction, but this is not the case with tics.
Stomping and the pressure it causes to the feet will cause stress, and often perceived as anti-social behaviour.
What do you do when you’re a victim, seen as the aggressor? When you’re treated like a threat, but the one needing the help?
There is something about foot-stomping that doesn’t go down well with others. It can be misinterpreted in many ways.
What it is, is a release of pressure. A pressure that can’t be seen by the observer. Knowing this, as the person with tics, can hurt just as much as the tic itself.
