When I’m feeling alone and frustrated as an autistic person.

Sometimes I feel really frustrated and alone. When others ignore/deny my sensory issues, it hurts. Having sensory issues is not something that I am doing purposefully, its because my brain is wired differently. I’ve had this happen a few times. I usually feel sad about this. Then, I can start feeling frustrated with myself and the other person. Noises really bother me, normal noises in the house even bother me. Some noises that bother me are

  • Sweeper
  • Leaf blower
  • Lead sucker
  • Loud kids
  • Coffee grinder
  • People talking/laughing loudly

Other noises that bother me

  • Garage fans
  • Loud music
  • Screeching microphones
  • Loud air conditioning systems
  • Toy drums
  • Sirens
  • Fire alarms

So yes, this is what frustrates me. To cope with this I like to listen to music, play on my Nintendo 3DS, talk to other friends/family members, draw, read, etc. I appreciate others who do try to understand my sensory issues. It makes me feel a lot better when I have others who try to understand my sensory issues, and who love me even though I am autistic and have sensory issues.
