Movement disorder and interviews
Good afternoon. I found this cast by word of mouth a few weeks ago, and have loved them all! I want some feedback from anyone that can give legitimate help...
I have a movement disorder that gives me significant facial tics, especially under pressure...like an interview. I have medicine and the doctor is thrilled with my progress. Even then, it's a management regiment and not a cure. Focusing on it only helps for a few minutes, then the tics will burst forth and subside.
As one might imagine, the tics do not interview well. I have thought of coming out with it in the interview, but since it is medical, that puts the interviewer in an uncomfortable position. On the other hand, being up front with that information might neutralize the issue and allow me to relax.
The tics can send the wrong body language, like being frustrated or angry or confused, when I am perfectly on board. I hope to hear from you soon!
