I Have Asmr

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 265 People

    Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response

    I've always been very sensitive but I did not know that there was a name for this sensation. My triggers are slow, accented, or unique speech patterns, experiencing a high empathetic or sympathetic reaction to an event, and enjoying a piece of art or music. The ASMR videos I...

    I Like To Watch People 'Fiddle'.

    This feeling started before I can even remember, but my earliest memory came from watching other people play tv games. I LOVE the sounds the buttons make, and also looking at the buttons they are pressing without knowing what's going on in the game sets of my tingles. There used...

    I believe I do. . . I got this weird numbing,

    buzzing calming feeling I get sometimes. I was near my computer when it happened and decided maybe its a symptom of something I should be aware about and have had for years. So I googles "What is this weird numbing,buzzing feeling you get from something repetitive?". I found...

    I discovered what was this tingling sensation

    when going on youtube and watching facial massages, or facial treatments videos. Sometimes make up videos as well. I was watching a video with Victoria Sprigg when the word "ASMR" appeared in the comment section. I wondered what it was about and searched the Internet. I was 16 y...

    I'm pretty sure this is ASMR

    that I get. It's really intense for me, though. I watch this one particular YouTuber, and when I get into it, my lower back will arch uncontrollably. I'll usually end up laughing whilst it occurs. It's a weird sensation. Sometimes, after a while at my lower back, the sensation...

    ASMR In Dangerous Places!

    One of my earliest memories of ASMR were back in elementary school gym class when we had to climb this really long rope, probably about twenty feet high. When I would climb it the sound of the rope between my hands and its gritty texture made me dizzy and sent tingles down my...

    So Is Asmr Beneficial?

    I am pretty sure i have asmr because i always seem to get that tingly sensation from certain sounds but i honestly love it. Is there any other like long term benefits from asmr that anyone knows of or anything like that besides feeling awesome?

    Since I discovered ASMR videos, I often need to look and listen to them to have a total, complete relax. Normally I fall asleep with them. I really think that mordern life is too chaotic.

    I just recently discovered ASMR.

    But I learned it is like a state of bliss and relaxation from certain triggers like rain, the soap of soap, soft voices, the wind, crafts, gentle how to's, you name it. I came across a video for sleep; never have I experienced such bliss. I'd always get tingles but not of fear...

    I had no idea what ASMR was a few days ago,

    but I have always known that certain things give me that wonderful feeling. That fuzzy, melting, tingly feeling that sort of melts all over me. Watching Bob Ross paint. Watching TV chefs, especially Nigella Lawson or Ina Garten. Listening to NPR. But the biggest thing that...

    I am completely new to the term ASMR.

    I can recall neck to childhood that I LOVED the sound of my dad driving- he would hum and the sound of the blinker going off would lull me to sleep. I adore having my hair brushed. It's so intense. Finding out there is a community of others who experience the same sort of...

    AMSR And Photic Sneeze Reflex ?

    I have always had these feelings

    since I can remember but never even thought of seeing if it was a real thing. I never wanted to ask my friends if it happened to them because I didn't want to be weird. Now I know I am not :)

    ASMR is the best. I've been trying to figure

    out what the tingles are forever. I've googled "good tingles" and all kinds of stuff. I finally searched for it on YouTube and discovered ASMR. Cranial nerve exams are my favorite. I also like palm readings. I have experienced it from listening to Shelton from big bang theory...

    ASMR Explains So Much

    Until a week ago, I had no clue that this sensation I got from certain sounds, certain actions, and other events wasn't experienced by everyone. I didn't understand why whispering in my fiance's ear didn't make him melt, didn't make him react in any way at all the way that I...

    Asmr Is Awesome

    I've had ASMR since I can even remember. I used to have a nanny and (I know this might seem weird) but when she would sweep the floor or clean windows, I would just get so fascinated with what I felt. I guess that because she was so gentle in the way she talked and the way she...

    I've had ASMR my whole life, but I had no idea that it had a name or that anyone else had it too. I remember it from as early as preschool, when I always wanted to play doctor or hairstylist with my friends, but I always wanted to be the "patient" or "client" and never the...

    What a glorious day it was
