Living with Involuntary Movement

It's there! --- It's always there!

It will be there in --

speaking,

eating,

walking,

dressing,

writing,

reading,

turning a page,

handling liquids,

and more.

It will be there all one's life!

And it worsens under stress, excitement or illness.

Efforts to subdue the movement seem only to increase it's speed and strength.
Dental work, eye exams, haircuts, etc. can become extremely difficult.

This doesn't even touch on dealing with the hurt caused by the insensitive attitudes of others.

Individuals living with involuntary movement live with frustration every day of their lives.

They know the cost of perseverance!

They deserve our admiration and respect!
