My boyfriend who is 23 has the TS since he was 13. He struggles daily and lately its been very difficult. His tics are stronger, but also he is dealing with a lot of obsessive thoughts. His anxiety is so high and with high anxiety seems to come more obsessive thoughts. His current thoughts are around him uncertain if he can be with me. He has so many moments of loving me, so many moments of knowing he wants to be with me, but in between are so many thoughts of not knowing, of telling me we can't be together, him not loving me, etc.
He knows he needs support to work on decreasing the tics and the thoughts, and will often say 'I need a doctor', but then the next day refuses going. He was going to his neuro/psych regularly before, but now he has moved and isn't going. He only calls in his prescriptions. He is taking medications, but refusing to take the anxiety medications due to side effects. He takes lorazepam daily, but also has an emergency medication of clonazepam. Recently, he's been needing to take a lot of his emergency meds.
Any suggestions or advice for me? I want him to see a doctor, but he's not wanting to. He needs to see a doctor. His anxiety, depression, and tics are overwhelming for him. Any words of wisdom from a person living with TS or a support person of somebody living with TS?
