Games with Tourette’s Syndrome and Comorbidities?

Hobbies

Tourette’s Syndrome can affect people’s brains in many different ways, and therefore there are many ways to combat symptoms. One way I like to tackle my tics is to keep busy. The best way I can achieve this is to do what I enjoy. My favourite thing to do is play games, primarily on my computer. Mostly games that require me to do more than one action at a time, so it really requires my brain to work its gears and cogs.

Favourite type of games

Games like MMORPG’s or for non-gamers, Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games, are very good at having dynamic combat systems using skills and movement. At the same time you need to move out of harm’s way. All of this whilst pressing skills on your keyboard and even mouse all at the same time. I do this whilst watching a show on Netflix or videos on Youtube and also talking to friends. Sounds busy right?

If I didn’t play games or keep busy some other way then my Tourette’s Syndrome would be a lot worse if not unbearable. There are times when I am unable to play games and I desperately try to keep my brain busy. If i I don’t then i may have a Tic Fit. Another way in which gaming has been beneficial is that it has allowed me to utilize skills I otherwise wouldn’t have. For example, due to playing games i know have special awareness, attention to detail, time management, multitasking and hand-eye coordination. I feel that positive gaming should be encouraged to young children with Tourette’s Syndrome. It is a good way of helping them develop these skills and to also distract them away from their Tics and Comorbidities.

Comorbids for short

Comorbidities are basically other disorders that can be present with people with Tourette’s Syndrome. If you think of it like an iceberg. At the tip you see the Tics whether they be Motor or Vocal. Underneath in the water the disorders you can’t see are there. These can include Rage, Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours, Sleep Issues, Anxiety, Impulsivity and Social Communication Deficits. There are many others yet these are the ones that I personally have and I will go on to explain them in another blog.

As always i hope you enjoyed reading and encourage you to see where the shiny writing takes you this time.
