View Full Version : Adults with SPD/SID and ADD/ADHD

03-24-10, 05:45 PM
Hello forum! I am 29 years old and have SPD/SID as well as ADD. I am just looking to connect with other adults who have Sensory Processing Issues.

Although the diagnosis wasn't brought up to me until I was in adulthood, looking back I can see I had it all my life. I just always thought I was "odd", but having an answer is truly a blessing!

I have sensory issues. Nothing diagnosed yet. I'm pretty much hypersensitive to light, touch, taste, smells, sound. Did I miss any out?
The most irritating is feeling I get from wearing certain materials.
I can't be without glasses much because of my light sensitivity. I even have some shades for when the light is so bad that it gets through my glasses and gives me headaches.

My sensory issues were actually discovered way before my ADHD. I think it's another reason I never got the ADHD diagnosis, since sensory issues overlap a lot with ADHD. Looking back, though, I don't think the OT was wrong, I think the comorbidity between these two is probably really high. Still, I don't think an official diagnosis for this exists in the US?
