Adult with Sensory Processing Issues
My story / symptoms
I have this overwhelming need to move frequently in order to stay alert. My paperwork is of a higher quality after movement.
If I sit still too long I feel like I am going to crawl out of my skin if that makes sense. Tapping my hands or shaking my foot helps during those unavoidable times where I cannot move.
Sensory processing impacts other areas as well such as sleep and auditory processing.
I need to get a minimum of 9 hours sleep preferably 10 if possible. It is probably due to the fact I have to move so much throughout the day.
As far as listening if I am at a conference I have to take notes constantly in order to stay focused and comprehend the information in a meaningful way.
These are just some examples of an adult living with sensory processing. The main area my condition impacts has to do with movement, listening and sleep.
Hope this information helps!
