I am 14.
I have sensory problems with all 6 of my senses. All of them are over-sensitive except for movement.
The lights are so bright that the text in the book i'm trying to read actually blends with the paper. I have had this issue for just a few months.
A lot of the songs I listen to hurts my head. The voices in the class feel like yelling and screaming, when everyone is talking in a normal speaking-voice. I hate my own voice!
Everything I touch hurts! My clothes feel like sandpaper on skin. I hate deep-pressure touch, because it makes me feel the horrible fabric of my clothes. Slime feels cold like ice, and sharp.
I don't really use my sense of smell a lot, but flowers and perfume smells bad to me.
Cupcakes taste bitter like broccoli to me. I also hate the way that the icing feels in my mouth and I can't stand it. Water also tastes bitter to me.
I never get dizzy, even after spinning around 157 times over. I just hate fast movements because they hurt and sometimes give me a headache.
I am also terrified of the OT, because she would brush me with a poky, scratchy brush. She would wrap me in a weighted blanket or hang a weighted vest on me. She would also force me to do messy play when I don't want to.
The OT may also try movement activities, which won't work because my sense of movement is way under-sensitive. These include the use of a platform swing or trampoline. Those things give me a headache.
Is there a way out of these sensory problems?
I can't even cry about it because my eyes are dried out. :(
