sensory processing disorders @ 12:51 pm

Current Mood: curious curious

http://www.sensory-processing-disorder.com/sensory-processing-disorder-checklist.html

I've been doing some autism research online and this one's a real eye-opener. I'm definitely hyposensitive to touch - thus all the knitting, and sleeping under heavy layers of blankets even when it's too hot. Also hypersensitive to sound - I keep shushing the kids when I watch TV, and I sleep with earplugs. And the Emotional dysfunction is spot-on. Might be some minor interoceptive issues too - feeling too hot one minute & too cold the next, and rarely thirsty.

My life is finally starting to make more and more sense.

It was a Ravelry group for autistic crafters that led me to this link, they were discussing weighted blankets.

I have a shawl crocheted in DK weight cotton which is so lovely and comforting to wear due to its weight.
