A processing deficit

I have always been happy for others to make their own decisions, but it’s the effect of their decisions that can sometimes interfere with my Sensory Processing.

Because the sensory information is not processed properly or sent to the appropriate part of my brain, causing a neurological traffic jam, others’ decisions can leave me panicked and dealing with anxiety.

Sadly, certain parts of the brain do not receive the correct information it needs, which makes the information I receive difficult to process and act upon in the correct way. Oddly, I’ve participated in conversations others say I’ve had that I don’t recall where decisions have been made.

If smaller issues or decisions sound and feel right I have clarity, but everything must look and sound right for it to feel normal.

  1. Your processing deficit must be difficult for both you and others, but it is for others to work with you at your level to minimise those difficulties; so you are comfortable in those situations where it is a problem.

    1. Thank you. Yes, although it’s not how others see it. But you’re right, sadly this is how it needs to be. It’s not something I get to change.

      As you say, I must be comfortable in situations where there are potential problems, so others don’t lie the blame at my door; but instead try to understand things from my point of view.

  2. I’m fascinated by the research you’ve done to bring your health issues to the mainstream, on this site in particular.

    Which makes it so cool to have your Sensory Processing improve our lives the way it has.

    1. Thanks Tim. It’s taken me a long time, but I feel I’m getting there.

      I’m pleased that my Sensory Processing has finally been put to good use and that by sharing my experiences I help myself come to terms with what’s happened to me, whilst helping others too.

      Thanks for being a part of that and to everyone else too.
