    The Sound of Water Splashing

    It's makes uncomfortable and embarrassed! Another childhood mystery? no zen fountains for me I guess! Another one is an airplane flying overhead. Oh how I hate that! It gives me flashbacks. Like I get random memories from my life more strongly while I hear it. German past...

    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...

    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...
