Background info: I have tourettes that mostly manifests as hiccups
Tourettes tics often become more apparent as you get surprised or stressed.
I would like you to take those facts and think about the sheer amount of times growing up people would hear my hiccups and think they could help me by scaring me.
@diffractie for MOST people, it shocks their brain and resets the breathing. which stops the hiccups
