Hello, I’m Wilamena and I’m a musician, cello player & percussionist. I am a 16 year old girl who attends school, surfs, blogs, bakes, and travels and I also have Tourette’s syndrome and OCD. I don’t let my neurological conditions hold me back.
I am writing this blog to bring some awareness and to help other people that also have these conditions. This blog is about my story, my daily life, my tics, my struggles and little tips on how to cope.
So, welcome to TicTastic! Xx

Today I had a day filled with lots of medical things. It started with a checkup with my paediatrician. We had a good appointment today and we talked about medicines. Because I have been on two different medicines before, Clonidine and Aripiprazole I have to decide whether to look into a different one for me […]
I review some fidget toys called tangle toys which I find really useful with my Tourette’s. I use these to help with my tics when I am in certain situations like school, or quiet places. Hope you enjoy the video 🙂 Xx Some online places to look for tangle toys: My metallic blue ones came […]
Today I have quite a busy day because I have just finished doing my cello practice which I did for an hour which went quite well today. I am also meeting some friends after lunch to go quay jumping, which means that when it is high tide you can jump off into the sea, it’s […]
