YES, yes yes yes yes and affirmative!
I am 39 yrs old. I have 2 boys that I yell at all the time or I isolate myself. The reason I even realized I had this was by looking at how my mis-diagnosed with severe autism son's behavior is and how my Father's was.
My Father constantly yelled at us to stop making noise or turn the lights off or threw away or perfume,e/nail polish or gave away any pets we had if they smelled badly.
We thought he was just a mean drunk. He isn't.
I then began looking at my son and the way he behaves when all the lights are on or how he is severely distracted by noise or movement.
He has SPD, not autism. He makes eye contact and he is extremely social. ITS HIS SENSES! He is 7 and I don't believe he will always be this way now. I am 39 and I don't believe I can't do something to turn this around. The brain can do wonderful things once you know what to ask of it.
I just wanna stop yelling at my children and I want my boy to be comfortable in life, because looking back i NEVER was.
I am so glad I read about SPD. I have other issues, fibromyalgia and Meniere's disease, so I can see how I couldn't separate my symptoms into SPD. This page made it possioble. Perhaps I don't even have Meniere's. I see that ppl with SPD have vestibular issues!
PLEASE do not stop taking any medications you are taking for other issues without talking to Dr!!! I'm not.
God bless y'all for putting page together. Maybe I can stop this hell with this generation and make changes for my babies.
