Quick story before my question:
I am super being on homework this week (no surprise there) and sat down and just heard too much noise. My neighbor was in outside talking on the phone with someone on speaker (sounded like she was talking on a walkie talkie), and the tv from my fiancé in the other room.
I had recently purchased ear plugs for a job this summer, and decided to use them to concentrate on my homework. But after I put them in, I felt this was of relief that has never really happened before. Just going from all these little sounds to absolutely nothing was just incredible.
I have to go back to the doctor soon for ADD, and I was thinking of getting tested for sensory processing disorder. I think I have read that it is possible to have both. I’ve looked at symptoms, and I know you should never self-diagnose, but I struggle with a number of them.
What is your experience with sensory processing disorder? Is this just ADD? What is the difference between the two?
