OMG, this is me.
I was having problems yesterday with the fact that my fiancee's daughter had brought Starbucks coffee into my house, because the smell makes me absolutely sick. I think I was looking for something on the internet that justified my sickness, and what I stumbled across put me in a state of absolute shock.
I have problems with high-pitched noises, dogs barking, turtleneck sweaters, smells, people touching me, animals jumping on me. As I read through the checklist, almost everything fit.
I bought "Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight
" last night, and am very surprised to hear that I'm not alone.
I would be curious if other Sensory Defensive types have problems being jumped on by animals? I love animals, but physically hurt when they jump on me, and I become overly agitated.
Thanks for posting this info.
