does anyone find that when they are stressed that sounds like background noise and other noises become alot louder and you are more than likely to meltdown. i find this particularly when i am ill/stressed.i also find that i feel more disorientated and this makes me feel really detached from the outside world.
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?
