Sensory issues - August 1st 2009, 08:40 PM

For a while now I've been having issues with my Sensory and its really getting to me
My hearing is incredibly sensitive and everything around me is loud and it has become very hard to deal with, I get bad headaches because of it.
I'm also struggling with light, and its gotten to the point where I cant go outside during the day because the day is really too bright for me. I cant get sunglasses because I need prescription and they are expensive.

I dont know why I now have such issues with my hearing and sight, its been going on for months or I'm just more aware.
Does anyone have any advice?

I think I may have posted this in the wrong forum
Please dont be annoyed at me if I have, I get confused very easily

All you have to decide, is what to do with the time that is given to you

Hi there,

As part of what I'm studying, I work a lot with kids with sensory integration issues. Have you ever talked to a doctor, occupational therapist, or other professional about your sensory issues? There are different tools you can use and things you can do that can help manage them. I'd really encourage you to talk to a parent or other adult who can refer you to someone best equipped to help you.

Sensory issues aren't pleasant but they also aren't permanent and can be managed. Feel free to PM me if you want; I'd be more than happy to talk with you at length about this! Take good care of yourself.
