4 golden rules for managing sensations

Posted by: alisrowe, July 15, 2016

Having suffered an injury, I’ve had frequent hospital appointments! That’s the inspiration for this blog article.

For someone like me who has hypersensitivity, even ‘normal’ sensations can be extremely uncomfortable. Sounds such as fire alarm tests, sirens, drilling, hammering, the doorbell ringing and lorries driving past are things that can happen every day yet they don’t overly bother most people. I personally hate the sounds of live music, instruments, singing and clapping as well, whereas many people enjoy those sounds. Nobody likes the smell of garbage or sewage but – again – people seem to get over them quickly. Feelings such as combing your hair or wearing certain items of clothing can be uncomfortable to some people but not overly so.
