They call them"echphenomena"
.It's interesting to discover years later that there's a formal name for something you experienced. Around age 7 to 8, I went through a period where I would repeat everything
a second time just under my breath(I could also not hear my self doing so). It eventually went away on it's own, but for a while I was freaking people out. In my twenties I met two other people who underwent similar experiences. Most often, these behaviors seem to be associated with Tourrete's Syndrome
or Parkinson's, although I suffer from neither. It is
a fascinating phenomena, though. Have any other MeFite's been acquainted with this phenomena?
