Need help please! My SPD is out of control.

by Molly
(Albuquerque, NM)

I've had SPD my whole life, I was diagnosed at an early age and got therapy. I developed an anxiety disorder in my teen years from it. I've been sick for the last six months and have had a really rough time. I have a really hard time dealing with the sensations of being sick and it tends to cause me to freak out. The situation manifests itself differently as time goes on. I know I need therapy for it but I don't know what that entails for an adult with SPD.


If anyone's been through SPD therapy as an adult, I'd really like to hear about your experience. I plan on getting auditory therapy because I can't tolerate any loud noises or certain frequencies, but I don't know if there is anything that can be done about extreme sensitivity to light or my poor shot nervous system and the fact that things just "feel weird".

Please please help if you can with any suggestions/stories/experiences/advice. I know we are prone to depression and anxiety and I'm in the throws of it all very badly right now and am desperately seeking answers. If you took the time to read this, thanks so much.

Hi

Have you tried discussing it with your doctor or local Occupational therapist? They should be able to refer you to someone who specialises in helping adults with SPD. I think I have the auditory SPD but my husband and daughter suffer a lot with it. It's good that you know what's causing the problems you have so the next step I would think is finding a good therapist who understands how to treat the condition. I'm sorry I can't help any further as I'm very new to SPD.
