Has anyone ever had a sensory overload that’s not so much about the typical like, there’s a lot of stuff going on around you, and it overloads, but more like, there’s too much you need to do with some task?
I’m not sure if I’m making any sense, so…My mom bought a new couch, that’s enormous and heavy. She needed my help in moving it into the house and I immediately started freaking out. Not like an anxiety attack. It felt a lot like a sensory overload, but it was more like the sensory stuff was having so much to do (lifting it, balancing the weight, making sure it didn’t hit the walls, making sure it stayed on the little wheeled thing, dealing with my mom’s shitty directions) and pay attention to that even though there wasn’t much going on, I still felt overloaded.
And then afterward I was completely mentally exhausted, and she clearly thought that it was a physical exhaustion thing. Which it wasn’t, not remotely. And she was clearly looking down on me for being exhausted from what she thought was no big deal.
All. the. time.
