Help me

I'm 21 and for as long as I can remember textures have always bothered me but the past month or so it's like 100 times worse... I can hardly lay in bed at night because I feel and hear the texture of the sheets and blankets...

my husband tries to hold my hand the the feel of his skin makes me sick. I can hardly go out because my putting on clothes means that my fingers will feel them and they will itch on my skin. I have to wear socks and shoes at my job and socks in my shoes all day I can feel the socks on my feet and it makes me sick.

I can hardly go into my living room because the texture of the rug makes me cringe ... I just don't know what to do. Almost every texture (the feel the sound everything) makes me feel so sick and I don't know angry and the fact that it makes me angry makes me frustrated and now I, I just don't know what to do.

What can be done? I have not been diagnosed with anything and would not even know where to start but I'm not sure what to do and I just can't take this.

What do you think?

Its really going to be ok.

Hi, I felt this way before. My SPD gets "loud" at times. But if you see your doctor there are medications that can help. There are coping mechanisms and ways to calm it by relaxing and focusing.

But your doctor should help you by guiding you to the proper specialist. Please seek out a professional. It took me years and almost going insane before knowing this wasn't all in my head. I hope your going to take this opinion. I do hope this gets better.

It sounds like you really need to go to your doctor and get a recommendation to see an Occupational Therapist.
