Anonymous said: im gonna vent a bit if thats ok :c so ive had auditory sensory problems for a long while, as well as some touch problems, and when i learned about spd its like something clicked, i was so happy! but last night, after extensive research, i tried to tell my mom, and she just brushed it off, saying i dont have it and that its probably just stress. it bummed me out so much, i regret ever telling her about it

I think a lot of people have a hard time accepting that their children might need help. It’s not constructive and can be harmful, but I see it aaaaaaaaall the time.
I’m sorry that your mother isn’t taking you seriously, and I hope that it changes! There’s nothing wrong with needing help understanding why your brain does the dumb stuff it does, but for some reason a lot of people find it shameful. Which is also dumb. 
Life and stuff is just so dumb, isn’t it?

Good luck!

I can't leave my earbuds in for very long because I hate how they feel on the inside of my ears, and if I use my over-ear headphones for more than a couple hours straight they press uncomfortably on the outside of my ears.

Hand knit things are so wonderful because of that amazing level of customization! I’m shoulders deep in my Christmas knitting right now! :P

Also kudos to your bff for knitting a blanket! That’s no small feat and must have taken a lot of work!

C.O.M.M.U.N.I.C.A.T.I.O.N.
Communication without judgment or a dismissive attitude can help make sure that your guy can feel comfortable telling you when and why he might be feeling overwhelmed by a stimulus. Ask him questions about it in an attempt to get some sort of idea on what he’s going through. Take that information and do your best to make life more comfortable for him when you two are together. (Mistakes happen, nobody’s perfect, but the fact that you are trying will be generally well received) 
I’m so glad to hear that you want to help him and make an effort to keep him from being overwhelmed! It’s more than a lot of people would do!
Good luck, and keep communicating!

Woooooooorst!

I like to have white or ambient noise playing while I study, so I thought I’d share a list of my favourite websites in case anyone else was interested.
Rainymood - Allows you to play rain, with suggestions of ambient music to play at the same time. Has an iOS and Android app, my personal favourite.
Calm - A visually beautiful website. Provides moving backgrounds and an option for guided calm which allows you to immerse yourself in the music and to relax. Has a free app for iPhone. Another one of my favourites.
Showertime - The experience of taking a shower without the water. Allows you to control features such as length of shower, size of room, water pressure, etc.
Coffitivity - The background noise of a coffee shop. Allows you to choose between different locations such as lunchtime lounge, morning murmur  etc. Has an app for iOS and Android as well as a desktop app for OS X.
Soundrown - A website with a sleek minimalist design, allows you to choose between rain, coffee shop, ocean, fire, bird noises, or a combination of the five.
Relaxing Snow - Visually beautiful falling snow, the website gives you the opinion to play music with the scenery, or to choose your own.
Raining.Fm - This website gives you the ability to adjust the rain to exactly how you’d like it, with options to tweak thunder, rain and storm noises. Has an app for iOS and Android, as well as a timer and snooze option.
Rain For Me - Simple rain effects with the option to download the audio files for offline listening.
Snowy Mood - Inspired by Rainy Mood, this website really makes you feel like it’s winter. Perfect for playing while snuggled up in a warm bed.
Rainy Cafe - Combines the sounds of a bustling cafe setting with the sounds of drizzling rain. Allows you to select the volume of each setting, or turn one off completely.
