My 2015 year in blogging!

Thank  you to everyone who has followed my blog, commented on it, shared my posts and just generally engaged with 21andsensory in 2015! I only started this blog in May this year and its incredible how many followers I now have and how many people are passionated about sharing and raising awareness of sensory problems. Thank you and I hope everyone has a happy new year wherever you are in the world!

Merry Christmas Everyone 🎉

Hope everyone has a lovely Christmas – I also hope it isn’t too overwhelming sensory wise for all those SPDers out there – I know it’s always such a loud, busy, colourful, bright, noisy, social and generally mental time of the year!

Always on edge.

Anyone else always feel on edge? I will always feel on edge when I’m out an about whether I’m on my own or with family or friends. Im just super – dooper aware of my surroundings. I go into like a panic mode and get cold sweats and awful nerves and can’t think properly. Its very annoying. Because so much is going on inside my head such as panicking, anxiety and all my sensory problems I tend to tune out of conversations. Completeley. Especially if people are talking to each other across me or at a table I just switch off.

I find in busy and loud environments I loose my senses literally. Like I don’t hear conversations, I can eat but can’t tell if I’m full or not as its too noisy (weird huh?) and I become over-reactive and irritable when people touch or brush against me. Its very tiring to be constantly aware of your environment because it changes depending on where you are and it happens sub-consciously without me thinking!

Does anyone else get these sensations or losses of sensation?
