Hi anyone who has input on the subject!

Minnie HaHA, has your son been dxed w/ anything? Is there any cure for SID? I think that's what I suffer from. It's so wierd and insane; it's hard to put into words. I just get completely overwhelmed by sensory input; clocks, dogs, snoring, TV, not so nice music; visual input, legs moving/shaking when someone is sitting drives me bonkers BONKERS. I feel caged, trapped, angry and overwhelmed, anxious and extremely stressed and tense. ALL FROM SOMEONE WIGGLING THEIR FOOT!! Has anyone heard of anything so bizarre? It's hell being me. HELL.
Any input would be great (as long as it's not sensory!);-).

> > For me it's more about noise. I feel caged and induces anxiety when I'm stuck listening to unpleasant sounds. or a wierd one is when people jitter or shake their legs. it's been murder being a student. I'm surrounded by people shaking their legs during class. I can't explain it, but it drives me insane. I remember the first time it bothered me when I was 11 in a classroom and a big boy next to me shook his leg sooo fast all the time it drove me mad.
> Here's something to throw in the mix. Have you considered that you might be simply hyper-sensitive to some forms of sensory input? This heightened state of awareness is called being "hypervigilant" and it is related to Sensory Integration Disorder (or DSI). Are you gifted? There is also a lot of what is called "overexcitabilty" in the gifted. Finally, do yo have an attention disorder? That is, are you easily distracted by things that others can tune out?
> These are all similar and perhaps inter-related and maybe easy to mistake one for the other or have more than one. I have been learning about them over the past year or two because my son has some developmental problems -- and he's gifted -- and it's really made me stop and look at what I THOUGHT was "wrong" with me. I've changed my attitude about what is normal and abnormal and about (the subjectivity of) DXs!
