My mom won't believe me.
Okay, so I'm 14 and my therapist just a few months ago told me to look this up, because she thought I have SPD. Well it turns out that I do, and she's been trying to help me out with it because it's effected my every day life. Aside from all the problems that come with SPD, my biggest problem is with my mother. She doesn't believe I have SPD. She won't listen to me. She thinks I'm just being overdramatic, like I "usually am". She thinks I completely overreact at everything. Like when I fall or get poked or hurt it seems to hurt me more than others and she just thinks i'm overreacting.
She also thinks I'm just being a drama queen when I have to turn my socks inside out because I can't stand the seams. The same thing with whenever I hear a loud noise or am unexpectedly touched, or show my dislike for hugs. Apparently I'm a "complete drama queen" because of all these things. So when I brought up SPD after my therapist suggested it, of course she just thinks i'm 'overreacting again'. I truly don't know what to do. It's like a loop that just never ends. I overreact because of the SPD and when I tell her about the SPD she just thinks that's me overreacting and just... I'm completely lost! Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? It's really hard without your own mother backing you up with a problem that effects you every day of your life. Help? :/
