I was misdiagnosed as having panic/anxiety disorder and defiant disorder. When really I have issues with touch, smell, taste, visual and auditory.
Touch: have to wear very soft socks (agitated if I cant find soft socks/clothes my whole day gets ruined) Sport bras only due to elastic strap pinching sensation against my skin, no tags, tennis shoes cannot have backs on them (slip on only) Lace, wool, polyester type material cannot be tolerated (the thought of having to touch such material freaks me out) What I do to soften clothes? Use 1/4 cup of laundry detergent and 2 cups of clothes softener per load. I avoid touching objects, material at let say Kmart. Avoidance of touch is most important for me being that it is where i am most sensitive.
Smell/taste: Tang taste like a (soiled) old folks home smells. I gag, vomit. Cant eat Sea food because it is rubber like texture agitates me bad.
Visual/auditory: I avoid crowds can't tolerate people talking chatting over each other. Garbage bag rubbing against itself, dog consistent barking, Over head florescent light humming/clicking/clanging, xray machine motor grinding/chirping/snapping noise. Starring: makes me agitated sensory overload, sudden change of schedule denies me direction no direction makes me go into fear mode and fear mode makes me freeze up hard to leave the apt.
Hard to explain.
