...and I've had them since I was little. I have a benign essential tremor, and I'm finally getting really fucking sick of it. It's not disabling at all, but my hands always shake like I'm really nervous, and when I am actually nervous I look like a Parkinson's patient.
I'm just fucking sick of people telling me to "calm down" or "quit being so nervous!" and having to explain to some asshole stranger that my brain is actually just a tiny bit broken. Even when people don't comment on it I can see them looking at my hands and then I actually do get anxious and it gets worse. I take beta blockers to calm it down when it's really bad, but then my blood pressure goes too low and I get woozy when I stand up. It's a lose lose I tell you.
Any otherwise healthy OGers who deal with this shit? I've put up with it for years, but a big part of my job now is speaking in front of people and there is ALWAYS some stupid motherfucker who thinks its their job to bring it up. I'm about to start slapping bitches.
