I know this is what my issue is

I know that I for sure have this, I have almost all of the hypersensitivity symptoms. My parents say that I've had some of these symptoms since I was a baby. Only problem is, they refuse to believe that I have this. I have an especially hard time getting dressed and I absolutely hate being touched.


Last week one of my friends came up and hugged me and I jumped so high and far away that everyone in my class stopped and stared at me. I did not jump out of fear though, I hate how it feels when people touch me, even just a poke is bothersome. Even though I'm almost old enough to move out and go to college I hope my parents will eventually help me with this issue. On top of that I have an anxiety disorder and it makes it worse when I'm frustrated at how something smells/feels/tastes/etc.

I hope that others will reach out for help if they can, I've been trying to for 3 years now and i have just about given up.

Try the Gaps Diet it has helped my two girls with their sensory issues. Make sure you get the book it explains these types of issues better than the website.

I have found something that helps with emotions. Have a water bottle close always. If you are feeling stressed, or something similar a good thing to do is have a drink. If you are really having problems put water on your face the next opportunity.
