Mom has said she thinks that wearing my noise canceling head phones too much was increasing my sensitivity to sensory input and suggested I start wearing them less. I don’t wear them all the time, but they are my first line of defense to help my sensory issues, so it’s fairly often. She said she suspected it because my father(the parent I inherited autism from) started communicating more about causes of his noise sensitivities after he started sleeping with ear plugs. I’ve been dealing with pretty high sensitivity for a while due to really bad burnout, but it has improved significantly since I stopped pushing myself to go places and started using sensory aids, so I really don’t want to start using them less. I tried to look for information on this but all articles just talk about them being good preventative for meltdown and are geared towards autistic children, so im not convinced that they have the information I need. Have you guys noticed anything like this or is this just another case misinterpreting stuff?
I’m trying make my closet more sensory safe and was thinking of getting compression clothing, weighted clothing or something thin but sensory safe to wear under stuff? Have any of these helped for any of you guys and do you have any brand/fabric type suggestions?
How do u measure when u start to feel anxious and how long does it take to go down? Does everything amplify when your in stressful situation?
So I was looking up other people who hate getting their hands/feet wet or biting clothing, and they say it may be a symptom of adhd, but i have not been diagnosed with that specific disorder. Is it possible it's overlapping with Adhd?
Hi, i don't know anyone who has spd or Asd(qspergers/Asd)and other issues i have. I just turned twenty and I was wondering how others cope with life and adulthood? Especially with things like getting a job, social anxiety, going places alone, getting overwhelmed, and especially "Avoiding" things. You see, I want to overcome this so I can be more myself, happier, more indipendent, and actually start living especially being 20 i really want to make changes and not repeat the same thing this year as previous. And continue missing out on what life has offer. I just don't know anyone who understands the pain and struggle that I go through I was hoping to connect with anyone that does or who has already been through similar things.
how do you deal with feelings sick to your stomach because of sounds when you can't remove yourself
