What mental disease could cause people to spontaneously swear? Answered

I was down-town last week buying material for a photography back ground when I passed a lady who every minute or so went "F-F-Fu-F***ing C**t!" What would cause this?

The whole reason I came to this page was because I have this issue.  Every so often I will say to myself "MFSOB".. no tics...I haven't always had this.  Maybe been a year...not sure.

 I notice it mostly when I'm stressed.  sometimes as I'm going to bed and just before I go to sleep I will find myself saying it.

 Hmm, might want to ask your doctor, but next time it happens just take a deep breath, go get a drink of water and walk outside before you do what ever was stressing you out again.

Tourette's is the most likely cause, especially if she had noticeable tics (uncontrolled movements of some sort) as well. Sometimes schizophrenia can cause impulsive behavior.

This may have been something else. People with Tourette don't usually key in on one word.

She looked about the age where your children have left home for the last 10 years. At least.

Society causes people to swear - the feeling of being hard done by, and being treated unfairly or not as nicely as we would like. Even the people who say they do not swear - do, even if only mentally.

Yeah but spontaneously every minute or so? And at the top of her voice? that's a seriously bad mood.

I have a few friends with stress tourettes - we just laugh it off between ourselves, have a rant to clear the frustration and back to ordinariness again - maybe the poor soul didn't have anyone for a controlled and private outlet - whatever is going on with her. My sympathy to the lady and my admiration to you for having the spine to enquire and to be understanding about it. We could do with many more of the likes of you in society. I hope you have a pleasant weekend. ;-)

Ha! I forgot about him, Halloween isn't a great custom in Australia because it's Spring and all the pumpkins that aren't from China are 6 months away.

I may just make up a costume to get into the "mood" of things though.

Well, sallow complection and sunken eyes gave her a creapie look, but yes it could just be a family problem.

Hmm, no apparent oddities. She seemed quite fine and when I first heard it I thought it was the couple behind her. But when it happened the second time it was apparent who it was.
