Help! As fall is here, I start to feel worse, and with that comes the rediculous sensory overload. It makes me on the edge. My son would not listen and did the opposite of what I asked him (not on purpose) and I snapped. He has problems paying attention (will have him tested for Lyme in November, as some might know, Lyme can cause consentration difficulties in children). The combination of both our "imperfections" clashed, and I am of course the grown up and should hold my horses, but my brain is so shot when I flare that emotion rather than intellect takes over. I feel baaad! Nobody is perfect, I know, but I want my son to feel good about himself when he goes to school. I know the sensory overload get bad with me, sounds, and anything you can think of gets me if I don't turn off the distraction. Even my own voice drove me bonkers,,,,LOL! How do you huys deal with those everyday things? If I put my mind to it and have a game plan how to deal with it ahead of time I usually do well. I think I have to do this. Do you have a suggestion of medications (non psychiatric) that works on sensory overload that we often have with FM/CFS? Thanks for listening to me.
