This is a drawing I did which I found whilst clearing out my bedroom. It’s probably 2-3 years old but I felt it was still relevant to me today. The lines represent music ‘faders’ like you see a DJ or radio station using. My bodies ‘faders’ are always on full 24/7. This is very hard to deal with 😓
Sometimes I can hide my sensory problems. Other times I can’t and I erupt into a meltdown and have weird and unexplainable emotions. But I’m learning each day that this is how I am. I cannot change my sensory processing disorder. But I can damn well try hard to manage it ✨
I have no real routine at the moment (uni has finished and I graduate in a month) apart from work every weekend. This is hard but is one of the reasons I’m actually looking forward to getting a full-time job
Does anybody else feel like their ‘faders’ are always turned up to the highest sensory setting? How do you cope when you feel overwhelmed? Feel free to share in the comments below!
