23 years old and I think I may have SPD
(Dallas, TX. USA)
Most of these cases I have seen involve children, I am not autistic, however, my brother is. I need to figure out what's wrong with me, for as long as I can remember I have not been able to wear collared shirts, I freak out and end up tearing them. The tips of my fingers and toes, including nails, cannot touch anything of rough material or my whole body gets goose bumps and I have to swipe my tongue throughout the tips of teeth to relieve myself or scratch my fingernails on top of my other hands finger nails. It started getting better. However, I have no idea how it got to this point, but recently after giving birth, I noticed that it has gotten worse.It's to the point where I can't really turn the pages of my books or magazines without cringing, I constantly am afraid of my hands drying out because it feels worse that way.It's hard working in the medical field and having to hold everything in. Somebody please help me, I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Or just to know I'm not alone.
