Zach from Extra Fabulous Comics Illustrated this FML!

Today, as always, I have Tourette's syndrome. It causes me to occasionally make a beeping noise. My boyfriend just figured out that if he beeps back, it makes me beep again. He thinks it's hilarious and won't stop. FML

Number 1:
You're being an asshole.

Most likely he means no harm. It kinda reminds me when your BF finds your secret tickle spot and thinks it's funny to touch it constantly just to get your reaction. Negative or not. I understand it can be annoying when it's taken too far and he doesn't know when to quit. Hoping he'll get board soon enough.
*Cross fingers* he doesn't own a "Roadrunner" DVD marathon.

a lot of you dont seem to understand tourettes. ticks can be incredibly frustrating, a bit like sneezing. she isnt just saying "beep", shes having uncontrollable muscle reactions. like most people with tourettes she probably cherishes every moment that she is tick free so for him to actually purposefully trigger them and then laugh at her pain is a horrible thing to do.

maybe they are both having a laugh over her medical condition. it could be like a weight lifted of her shoulders because they found humor in an otherwise, unfunny situation.

That's considerably better than him being annoyed by it. I mean, c'mon people, he could be a total ass but he isn't. He tries to have fun with her and enjoys her rather than being a douche about it.

It's really douchey to deliberately trigger her into having uncontrollable muscle spasms which is what happens when you have a tic. He's having fun at her expense which isn't cool at all. It wouldn't be okay to flash lights at her if she had photosensitive epilepsy nor would it be okay to make loud noises around her if she had PSTD so I don't see why it's okay because she has Tourettes.

Weird coincidence: I actually have both PTSD and photosensitive epilepsy. My friends never do anything that will trigger a violent or dangerous reaction, but they do sometimes trigger my mild seizures or make loud noises around me. It sounds horrible, I know, but it works for us. I feel like they aren't trying to ignore any part of me and are willing to deal with stuff right alongside me.

I have epilepsy myself. My ex-girlfriend once took me to a rave while we were still dating. She wasn't being horrible, she just didn't understand. I'd hope if OP explained it to her boyfriend he would stop. Me and my ex joked about the rave afterwards all the time; the same thing could happen here.

Then she needs HBO, since they don't censor, or FX, since they replace curse words with random words.
