It's probably because the rampant racism and far right bs going on in that app. You accidentally watch 5 seconds of some racist rant and it's all you get.

It is going to be a pain for doctors to figure out who has an actual condition and who has mass hysterical delusion. Salem witch trials, anyone?

On the bright side, you see them twitching from a distance and know to avoid them.

KB202: It is going to be a pain for doctors to figure out who has an actual condition and who has mass hysterical delusion. Salem witch trials, anyone?


I think the vast majority of them actaully have it.  I was watching a video by a 29 year old girl with tourettes, and she made a good point that she always had the condition, but she did not get correctly diagnised until her late teens when she saw a show about tourettes and realized it was what she had.

Prior to that her family doctor insisted she just had a behavior issue.

Poor girl had been bullied and forced out of school and was unable to get a job because all the entry level jobs involve customer service which is not big on girls ticking profanities.

I had seven ticks last week and I don't even use Tick-Talk.

So teens who endlessly watch videos of people with tics and tourrettes suddenly start emulating the behavior they find fascinating? Suggestible people have been around since humans, and hypochondria isn't new.
/Web MD laughing in the corner as they teach millions of hypochondriacs about their new disease.

What bigots. These children know their lived experience and no doctor should try to convert them. When my kid came out with Tourette's we embraced it. What a gift! They changed their name to #@%!*. They were born this way- stunning and brave!

Had to go to work 6days a week for 30 years to develop a tic. Bourbon helps a lot kids. Drink up.
