It has taken me too many years to understand how my sensory issues work.
It doesn’t matter how many questions other people ask, if the questions I need to ask don’t concur with the questions other people have asked, the thoughts sadly attached to my own thinking, can make me feel panic and that’s when I may begin to struggle.
If there is an issue and it’s not being resolved in a way that helps me find the resolution myself, the issue stays with me until a resolution is found. So long as I get on with finding a resolution and working it through in my own way, with others working with me, those issues can be resolved quickly.
If the issues are there, they’re usually there for good reason, but I need to sort them out before they go; they never go until I sort them out. The issues I have sadly don’t have to be my issues. They can be other people’s issues that involve me that they’re not dealing with.
Dealing with sensory issues is never an easy process, but it helps to have other people’s understanding. People may not fully understand how sensory issues work, but it would make things easier if others came to understand the process that I need to work through, just to feel comfortable in my own skin.
