ADD, Irlen Syndrome, and sensory sensitivity too? Ritch

Mitch, when you mentioned that you wanted to eliminate all the "noise", that's how I describe what I see (plus hear - I think of it as sensory overload). So I'm wondering if you fit Irlen syndrome too. I was tested for it by a certified tester & rated 'very high'. Perhaps you have it too. It's considered a real (not New Age) condition by the American govenment as they're funding money for more research into this condition.

The low contrast version on the above home page is SO much easier on my eyes. I didn't buy a bonafide pair of lenses (testing will indicate which colour works best for you) but still the sun glasses (not really sun glasses but those 'trendy' coloured nonprescription ones you see about) I bought are more soothing than regular sight.

Now, if there was only something that I could use to elminate all the external (& internal) background noises I hear that interfere with hearing & concentration.

I seriously think (from what I've read in all the science journals over many years) that the large & constant amount of DDT & other pesticides that I was exposed to in utero & through my growing years has contributed strongly to my ADD & sensory sensitivity. It seems to be something that runs in my family, but my sons & I seem far more affected than my parents & relatives. My sons are probably affected from the pesticides being passed on in the fatty content of my milk. I nursed them for a long time each.
