I am just finishing up a mini (A7) zine about living with Chronic Motor Tic Disorder (physical nervous tics, such as twitching) and it just occurred to me that there may be others out there who want to contribute something.
The only thing is that it is part of a Swap-bot swap (www.swap-bot.com
) and the deadline is this coming weekend so I need to get it finished in the next few days (really by Weds 21st-ish)... thought it was worth asking anyway just in case somebody had a spare hour and wanted to contribute.
I am looking for people who have experience of the following things or similar (personal experience or a friend/family member):
Phonic tics (eg. Tourettes)
Obsessive compulsive disorders
Hypnic jumps/Myoclonus (sleep seizures)
I am also interested in including anything from people who suffer from night terrors or sleep walk/talk.
I know it is very short notice but if anything would like to add something then please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org in the next couple of days. Please remember that it will be photocopied in B&W and will only be A7 size (approx 3x4 inches).
Any little illustrations, comments, stories or whatever. It is a kind of serious topic (for people who have to live with it) but I want to deal with it in a light-hearted way so I welcome any jokes, comics or embarrassing tic experiences. God knows, I have enough of those. I will send you a copy and a nice thank-you letter when it's copied!
Also if anybody wants a copy then I will post you one for free, just send me an email!
