Most books about psychos focus on the negatives, but I’m sure there must be a yang to the yin; people with positive mental disorders. This idea came about from my own condition of “polite tourettes”; not a real condition, but a habit of saying words such as “cool” or “awesome” at random or awkward moments (which can be as bad as real tourettes if one of these words pops out just after someone says “my mum just died”)!
I haven’t started writing this book yet, since I haven’t got enough ideas to make it interesting, but I thought I’d pop it on here to see what people thought of the idea.
Other possible symptoms are:
- People hear voices in their head telling them to make tea for people.
- People who can get stuck holding a door open for days, never wanting to go in front of anyone else.
- Not being able to eat whilst listening to someone else talk, as well as when talking yourself.
- The inability to be negative about another person, regardless of what that person’s done.
