Hello everybody, today I had a mixture of things on. To start with I started some of my pebble painting which is where I collect some pebbles and paint them with these special paint pens which are made for the pebble painting. I started by doing an owl which turned out really well! I like making colourful pebbles or copying one from a book that I have which is all about it.
Then I had a meeting with my therapist from CAMHS which was very useful this week (I see her once a week). I have been seeing the same lady since 2016!
After I had finished that, I did another pebble but I did a little simple ladybird. I think that it looks quite cute. I was surprised that I managed to do it at all because my tics have been really really bad recently which hasn’t been very nice at all! I haven’t been able to go up or down the stairs on my own and I have to watch something on my iPad when I am eating and when I am doing most things.
Later on, I went swimming with my mum and sister Martha-Lilly at our local beach which is like two minutes walk from our house. It was quite cold because it was the evening so I made sure that I put on my wetsuit.
Sometimes, I now copy what other people say or words from their sentence as vocal tics! It is a little bit like a parrot or something like that. My Dad looked it up and apparently there’s something called echolalia which can come along with Tourettes which sounds a lot like what I am doing at the minute.
I hope that you guys had a nice day! 🙂 Xx
