> Minnie-Haha, has your son been dxed w/ anything? Is there any cure for SID?

I don't know of a cure, but there is help.

My son has been identified as gifted. He also has auditory-processing problems and sensory-processing problems (though not a DSI/SID diagnosis). He received a DX of ADHD Primarily Inattentive, which my husband and I absolutely disagree with. (I’ve done a LOT of reading on these things in the past couple of years and there are many disorders that have overlapping/sensory components, so depending on what kind of specialist you see, you can get different diagnosis: ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, DSI, CAPD, BP, OCD… you name it.)

You've read up about DSI (a common acronym, as SID can get confused with SIDS – sudden infant death syndrome, which is unrelated). Anyway, you've read up about DSI. Good! Try to find a group for adults with it. (I found one at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/adultsid/, but I don’t belong to it so I can’t give you any feedback.) When you find a group, ask about other conditions that have sensory symptoms and which disorders tend to be found comorbidly with DSI. In other words, do not run to embrace DSI first and only. Have you also read about the “overexcitabilities” of the gifted? Start with http://www.stephanietolan.com/dabrowskis.htm Some books to consider: The Out-of-Sync Child (does a good job of explaining what DSI is); Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight (haven’t read it yet, but want to); and The Highly Sensitive Person (haven’t read this either). All are at Amazon.com.

As for getting a DSI DX, I know OTs (occupational therapists) can give them, but not all are trained in sensory-integration testing, so you’d need to ask around. Treatment (for children anyway, and I assume it would be similar for adults) usually involves a sensory diet. This isn’t about food, though. It’s more like conditioning your body to be more properly tuned to process sensory input. You might benefit from a listening therapy.

As for psychological help, some might use behavioral or cognitive therapy to work on this stuff, but if the foundation is neurological, is that the best approach? It certainly shouldn't be the ONLY one, and I would want to know that my psychologist was, if not supportive, at least not dismissive of the diagnosis and treatment of sensory-integration disorders. One thing a psychologist could do for you is administer an IQ test. Although there is no cure for being gifted, at least it helps to put one's “abnormal” behaviors into a more positive light!

Hi,
Wow - interesting. That sounds like me - ultra sensitive - five, even 6th sense sensitive. I had bad colic for three months. Apparently, from what I've read - premature and colic babies are some of the ones who have SID (there's a correlation).

> We went to the occupational therapist three times a week for four years; after that, he was so much improved that we did most of the exercises at home. just checking in with the OT about once or twice a month for six more years- until he went away to college.

**Wow. That isn't very encouraging! FOUR YEARS? Three times a week? Jeez....just forget it. Who has that kind of money? Ten years total? I'll be in my forties!

> He was very *colicky*, having been born a month pre-maturely, and screamed from 3 to 9 PM for the first six months. It was too much for him when we tried to comfort him, but white noise on the radio, and endless car rides, making sure we slowed down enough to avoid actually stopping at a red light, were the things that helped the most. As a child, he did not want to play with more than one child at a time, saying he got nervous and confused, and was unable to understand what anyone was talking about. Today, he is great in groups- and so much calmer. I'm so glad we persevered with the OT.

**This sounds just like me too. i had bad colic and was two months premature. I have the same experience w/ people/groups. It is interesting b/c that is generally normal, but when I'm feeling more on the manic side, it goes away. I feel calm around chaos. Mine is directly related to depression. But who knows which one comes first - the chicken or the egg? What's a result of the other?

Thanks for all of your advice and concern. BTW, why are you on PB boards? Are you dxed w/ anything?

This is an interesting thread. I've never been sure how my problems with really loud noises have come about. My official dx is BPII but I seem to feel this knee-jerk angry reaction to anything loud, intrusive or startling. It's been happening more and more over the years. I don't think I show any other signs of OCD or even SID but it's certainly good to see that I'm not "overreacting" as some people might suggest.

Yes this is an interesting thread and I am glad it's something I'm becoming aware of. It's strange how this intrusive sensory inputs can induce soooo much rage. They may induce a high intense anxiety that induces flight or fight and if I can't flight then I fight. And it makes noooo sense considering the actually input for the average person. I wish I were that average person; sigh...
What meds are you on? Have you found that they help w/ this?
I see my pdoc on Monday and will request Paxil. I need help w/ the anxiety part right now. I'm on 450mg of Trileptal and 25mg of Lamictal. The lam. is making me more agitated and anxious.

>I wish I were that average person; sigh...

Hey, mental illness give you character! :)

> What meds are you on? Have you found that they help w/ this?

I am on 75mg Effexor, 150mg of Wellbutrin and 50mg of Lamictal (I've only been on the Lamictal for 3 weeks.) I find that there doesn't seem to be anything that improves it. Or rather, completely gets rid of it. If my mood is stable the effect isn't so grandiose. If at a low part of my cycle it's terrible! I think when I'm manic I don't care how much noise anyone makes because I'm probably making it right along with them :D

> I see my pdoc on Monday and will request Paxil. I need help w/ the anxiety part right now. I'm on 450mg of Trileptal and 25mg of Lamictal. The lam. is making me more agitated and anxious.

SSRIs are out for me. They make me completely manic. Zoloft pretty much sent me over the edge with a mixed state overdose that resulted in my first hospitalization. Lamictal has been known to induce hypomania at low doses and/or when starting out. I'm not sure if that's what's happening to me but I'm all for it...it's making me really productive and I'm feeling *smart* on it LOL...I don't think it's mania as a few components are missing from my normal highs. Maybe you need to up the Lamictal? How long have you been on it? Do you find the Trileptal does anything for you? I was on Tegretol (precursor of Trilep.) and it stopped my manias but did nothing for my depression.

Hi Karen,
Wow! you're on two ADs and you're not manic? It sounds like you JUST started the Lamictal. A few weeks ago (two months) I tried WB w/ Trileptal and went loopey crazy. Previously and prior to my BPII dx I had tried Effexor and also went hypomanic on it. Zoloft made me a zombie. Celexa made me an insomniac and worse off. Serzone made me hypo and then just after Serzone exactly a year ago, I got the BPII dx.

I started Tril. when I was coming down off a hypo period two months ago and it seemed to soften the blow. But I do feel mildly depressed and anxious. I'm thinking about adding Paxil onto my Trileptal and doing away w/ the Lam. The lam is making my anxiety worse. When I was previously on it, I got that euphoria you talk about, but not this time. So who knows what trileptal is actually doing for me now. I just need to be less tense and anxious. I feel like I have an ulcer. It's terrible. I wake up in pain. Health suffers when there is anxiety.
I'm actually off to the doctor's now to inquire about it. Normally they don't tell me a whole lot. They will probably slap the label irritable bowel syndrome on me and send me off.

I have the same experiences w/ the noise. When I'm low, IT'S AWFUL. when I feel good, it's tolerable and when I"m up I fit right in.

Yeah, I'm surprised I'm not manic either but for me, I think it's just the SSRIs. I've talked to other bipolar folks that are also on other ADs. Supposedly Wellbutrin is one of the few that doesn't induce mania. My problem with Wellbutrin is that I need the Effexor to make it work and the Wellbutrin to make the Effexor work...weird augmented relationship between the two. Or at least that's what I've guessed in the past. I don't like the Effexor because of the sexual side effects but hey, what can you do? Better that than cycling all over the place. I'm on a low dose of each so sides shouldn't be a problem but they still are. Once things even out with the Lamictal and I get where I need to be, I might ask to go off the Effexor. We'll see. I'm really much more of an anticonvulsant responder--so I'm learning anyway!

Let me know how your appointment went.

Where are you in the world, anyway...I'm in Toronto.

While I don't agree that this is a "disorder," I have experienced these things my entire life. They've had both a positive and negative effect my development, but I see it more as an advantage.

There is a book that specifically addresses these issues that I'm currently reading and have thus far found very helpful. It's called "The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You" by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D. Most libraries have it, and it's a quick read, but I suggest anyone interested in the topic take a look at it because it's a very different view from most others, in that it looks upon it as a gift and not a "disorder."

**For me; I"m one of the few that Wellbutrin DID induce some mania! (even combined w/ Triletpal). BTW, do you drink? I noticed when on WB and when I drank I got greedy for more and then I got out of control wild. I had an overall insatiable appetite. (not to be rude - but masterbation lasted forever and I swore I went into some sort of enlightened state). I don't have a boyfriend so it's all I had. In other words, I was hyppppersexual hyper-anything-pleasurable.

Hi Jeff,
I have tried to get that book - in other words, been meaning to read it for years. I know part of this is a gift part of it is a curse. It's hard to live in the curse part. But it makes for living a highly dynamic life. Just wish I could find a partner who can put up w/ the wild ride!!!

Well, we're all different and these wacky meds can do just about anything, I find. I used to drink...right up until I started the Lamictal! Now I find if I do, I get a headache and sometimes a bit of tummy trouble. I never had that problem with Tegretol. I work with a guy that takes Teg. for epilepsy and he has the same problem but with a more severe effect. Epilepsy doses are a lot higher though so I don't know if it's dose related. Could be. Hypersexual/anything-pleasureable??? Yep, that was me in my manic state. I lived like that for years. How I did I have no idea. I look back on the behaviour and just my memories make me exhausted. Yeah, I remember when I would masturbate, like 5 times a day or something... Well, okay that's a bit excessive but you get the picture. That can be a given for a guy but not so common with women--haha...

But back to the drinking...I self medicated with alcohol for years...it's so intricately tied to my mania. I still drank to try and compensate for the depressive lows as well...I drank every day for several years...then I kind of dried out for a couple and then straight back at it!

I'm now taking 75mg Effexor, 150mg Wellbutrin and 50mg Lamictal. I've only been on the Lamictal for three weeks so I need to find out how that progresses...if I can stay at this level or if it needs to be increased. It's doing a good job but supposedly the anti-manic effects don't hit until it's a bit higher. Who knows though. I'm finding more and more that I am an excellent anticonvulsant responder...maybe I'm metabolizing it super well. What do you do? Is your job stressful? Is taking time off feasable? Actually, we're getting into some personal details here... If you want we can take it off board. Email me at kdorrin@thestar.ca

Paxil? Here's another example of individual response--SSRIs send me to the moon! And sometimes not in a good way. Zoloft drove me into a suicidal dysphoric mania/mixed state. It was my first overdose and landed me in the hospital for two weeks.

> **San Francisco Bay area. (East Bay).

Oh, man! Can I come and visit you?!?! My parents took me to California when I was four. FOUR! Can you believe that?!?! I can barely remember a thing! Actually, I can't enter your fair country at the moment. I was charged with impaired driving a few years ago and it's considered a federal offense/felony. At the border, there's no distinction in crime so the guards there might think I'm an axe murder or whatever. Yeah, all 5'2" of me... I just have to get a "pardon" which is easy enough...I just haven't had the time...or the cash; it costs a few hundred bucks. I can't afford the pardon so how could I afford to travel? Ah well, someday...

Sensory Integration Disorder - do I have it???

Posted by Kon on April 23, 2004, at 22:07:41

In reply to Re: Sensory Integration Disorder - relief??? » Jeff Leeson, posted by katia on April 23, 2004, at 4:02:18

Sounds I hate...someone chewing their food loud. Slurping soup, etc. drives me nuts. Gulping while drinking... Water tapping in the sink. Repetitive movements that people do like tapping their hands, shaking their feet and smoking (the back and forth movement of hand and blowing the smoke drives me nuts). People continuously clearing throats or picking their teeth. If someone is writing an exam beside me and they're gulping on a pop I feel like putting the pop through their head. I haven't gone one day through life without some sound bothering me. The worst is when I'm in a closed car where sounds are amplified. And I know I must be annoying to be around. I wish these sounds didn't bother me so much. Are these characteristics typical of SID or am I way off?

Thanks

Hey Karen,
Does this guy on TEg. get upset stomachs after drinking?
Maybe this explains my chronic diarrhea.
I work in a restaurant waiting tables and so the no drinking thing is hard for me at the moment.

I'll write more later as I'm exhausted and need to rest. p.s. you're not missing too much here - stay in Canada meds are cheap and people a bit more sane!

Actually, I can't enter your fair country at the moment. I was charged with impaired driving a few years ago and it's considered a federal offense/felony. At the border, there's no distinction in crime so the guards there might think I'm an axe murder or whatever. Yeah, all 5'2" of me... I just have to get a "pardon" which is easy enough...I just haven't had the time...or the cash; it costs a few hundred bucks. I can't afford the pardon so how could I afford to travel? Ah well, someday...

Hey Kon,

I could agree and I could add a few. How about the sound of someone clipping their fingernails in public? Or do you ever get annoyed watching a habitual gum chewer?

I haven't had time to go through this entire thread, but after reading many of the messages I wonder if anyone in the thread has actually been diagnosed with SID?

Having read a fair amount of medical literature on SID, it appears to be a rather serious disorder that significantly interferes with behavioral development when it can be accurately diagnosed. The thrust of the descriptions of this illness seems to be an internal inability to process certain documented stimuli, resulting in marked developmental limitations or behavioral oddities. Although irritation with behaviors of other people might mimic some aspects of SID, it appears that actual SID involves much more than this.

Many of the described irritations with other people's behaviors (foot wagging, gum chewing, finger tapping) could easily fall within dx of ADD, GAD, or the experience of the hypomanic phase of BPII.
