I figure this is a fairly normal thing; more things to focus on, more rapidly your eyes move around trying to focus on everything. Does anyone else experience this? And to what degree? For me it's mostly just in places where there's lots of voices all at once, like a mall.
I really want to turn my spare bedroom into a sensory room/quite comfy space or get away room, I think if really benefit from it when anxious or having sensory overloads which I guess can be most days some days all day.. Also I want a bubble tube in there 100% Any way does anyone have one? Is it worth it? Do you benefit from it? How much? Did it cost a lot? Do you recommend anywhere to buy stuff for it from? Any good websites/shops? Any advice or recommendations for it?
It's very common for people on the spectrum to have sensory issues. Here are some of mine: I have very acute hearing, and can hear things that most Neurotypicals find surprising. This can be an advantage at times, but it also makes me very sensitive to constant, indecipherable sounds such as crowd noise. This is why I so frequently had headaches at school. Bright, flickering lights are very difficult to deal with. They cause my eyes to become slightly sore and can quickly bring on headaches. Intense, indecipherable noise combined with flickering bright lights is almost intolerable, and I've come home because of this quite a few times. I don't have any severe issues with fabrics like some other Autistic people do, but there are a couple which make me feel itchy and uncomfortable. Also, I have to either wear shoes with socks or go barefoot. Wearing socks alone feels very uncomfortable, like I'm only experiencing half of the sensations I normally would. What sensory issues do you have to deal with?
I'm wondering if any of you have experienced this... "Echo" might not be the best way of describing it, but whenever I hear an alarm or any other continuous bleeping sounds, I continue to hear them for a minute or so even after they stop. Sometimes, it's so loud I can barely tell whether it's the really the noise, or just in my head. Do any of you experience this?
