Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: hypersensitive to ourside stimuli?
Posted by Dulcy on December 09 2008 02:01 AM
Okay. Gotta ask this. What drives my husband crazy is how easy I am to drive crazy.
Clocks ticking, snoring, any repetitive noise makes me want to scream. If it's repetetive enough, it can drive me to frantic tears. Clothing can bother me, though it doesn't always. Socks can drive me nuts, I am obsessively fussy about socks because they drive the craziest.
I'm not OCD, just can't block out external stimuli. I can't pick a voice out of a roomfull of people talking.
So what I want to know is, is this part of the dyscalculia pattern, or is this just evidence of my general neurotic personality?
