Mild sensory processing disorder?
I am a teen with some of the symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorder. I have trouble with noise, certain lights, getting my hands dirty, I'm very uncoordinated and I can't sit still. My mom doesn't believe that I have SPD, because she doesn't notice me doing these things, but I am so aware of what other people think/approve of (I'm highly gifted) that I force myself to not do the certain things such as spinning in circles or curling up in a ball when I'm agitated. Does the fact that I can usually control my actions (to some extent) mean that I don't have the disorder, or that I have a mild form of it, or is it just part of being highly gifted, and so acutely aware of everything around me? Also, is is possible to be sensory defensive and seeking? I'm very confused...
