Help! Can you still gain new sensitivities even as an adult?
I was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder at the age of 14. I am now 19 and have become more aware of the particular things that are over stimulated for me. However, recently I have become overly agitated with fabric. I cannot stand having my own clothing rub against itself.
For example, when I am laying down it bothers me to have both my socks on. I am constantly only wearing one sock these days. I cannot wear pajama pants to sleep anymore because the fabric rides up and I become very frustrated. I now can only wear pajama shorts. I also get frustrated with the seam of my pants, I am constantly trying to align the seams a certain way. This has all developed over the past six months or so. First the pants, then the socks, then the pajamas.
I am worried it will get worse. Certain fabrics have always bothered me when I was growing up (and even today), but it has never been anything like this. So I guess what I am asking, is, is there any way that a person with Sensory Processing Disorder can obtain new sensitivities to particular things even as an adult?
