Just can't sit still or relax!

by Ashley

I don't know if I necessarily have SPD, but I've been struggling for years to figure out why I can't ever sit still or relax my body. I'm 24 years old, but I feel like this has been going on since I was in my mid teens. I always have be fidgeting or popping different parts of my body. I have a difficult time being touched sometimes, especially if it's too lightly, and I can't ever get comfortable when I'm being cuddled or if my boyfriend is lying too close to me. Sometimes I get really anxious if I feel like I don't have enough room to stretch my arms out when lying in bed next to him. It feels really overwhelming and it makes me anxious.

I often have difficulty listening to things people are saying to me if there's some other noise at the same time and I lose focus easily. My boyfriend thinks it's odd and sometimes it hurts his feelings because he wants to be close to me but it can really overwhelm me to be touched too much. I don't know what's wrong or if it's all in my head, but it can be frustrating and annoying..

Does anyone else have the same kind of problem?

I have had and do have some of the similar symptoms! My advice to you is get a diagnosis! print the check lst on this site and go to your doctor! If they do not help you, call around and find a doc who has experience with sensory processing disorder.
Good luck!
