    Wondering What Is Happening To Me

    I am wondering if I am experiencing what you all have been writing about. I get quite irritated at loud startling noises such as,my dog barking, a cup breaking in a coffee shop, my husband sneezing, baby's squeal or cry. It seems to have become really noticable since I reached...

    My Sensory Issues

    I have problems with touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste.* Everything I touch is painful. Things often feel like sandpaper, or like needles. The only things that don't hurt me is glass, plastic, rubber, and some messy play. I have serious anxiety about messy play, especially...

    Pain From Touch

    I'm not totally sure that i have this but I think I may have it.  I am sensitive to repetitve sounds - I just want to scream at them to stop after a while.  I also seem to interpret touch as pain.  I used to think that if I put my arm on someone else and it hurt me...

    The Sound of Water Splashing

    As A Child

    I always thought there was something really wrong with me as a child.  I didn't like to be touched by my mother. I hate it when she sings and have to leave the room. Its not that I don't love her, I do. I really do care for her. It would put me into a cycle of self hatred...

    What Do I Do Now?

    I had been misdiagnosed ever since seeking help.  Things for me began a the time of birth, but then, most of my sensory issues, and ADD/ADHD ones, were smothered out of me.  After I had my 2 children and even more trauma added, was when the serious help...

    I've always had problems with touch, sight, and sound stimuli being too overwhelming. Just hard to deal with at time.
