You’ve heard of Autism? Then I’m sure you’ve heard of sensory overload.
What is sensory overload? In my words, it’s a bloody annoying thing that happens in the least convenient of times.
Example- I’m in the middle of the shops among a crowd and everyone is talking and noise is around me, a typical major shopping center occurrence. Suddenly I feel over-whelmed and every noise is magnified to extremely uncomfortable levels and people far away feel way too close ( just two of the things that occur.)I need to get things done so I push through this feeling an incredible sense of relief when the ordeal is over with.
This is a short and non-sense making post as my attention span is incredibly short today. I thought I’d share a tiny amount on what sensory overload means to me and I ask you if you have experienced sensory overload before or what it looks like to you? or if you’ve never experienced it what you think about it?
Until next time.
