Teen girl who possibly has SPD
Ever since I was little I was excessively sensitive. I do not have autism or adhd or any other diagnosis. I hated loud noises, get startled easily, loud music would distract me, I would cover my ears a lot. I also hated bright lights, they made me feel bothered and distressed. Often, i’d end up feeling panicky and nervous about being in noisy or crowded places.
Now, at the age of fifteen, I still have this severe sensitivity. It’s mostly noises that set me off, but sometimes it’s light or being near too many people. I always have my computer monitor on the lowest possible light setting and still think it”s too bright. People who talk and laugh loudly throw me off; I feel really uncomfortable around them. I am also intensely sensitive to pain and am extremely ticklish, sometimes to the point where I panic.
Do you think this is possibly SPD? As I’ve said, i’ve never been diagnosed with anything.
