Adults with SPD are at high risk of developing stress-related disorders like Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain

Even I was surprised by the ending of this video.

It’s one thing to list symptoms and complaints in your head day after day; it’s quite another to see yourself in real time.

In her book Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight Sharon Heller, PhD said, “By adulthood the body of the sensory defensive is torn apart from stress-related health problems.”

It is not my intention to freak anybody out. Not every day is like this. I have good days. Yesterday was a good day. I was out in lovely fall weather with Watson buying wedding clothes for Saturday. Today I’m a bit anxious and depressed. I’m in a fair amount of pain and I’m very tired. I can barely see past the fog in my brain. But I have enough energy to force myself not to blow off another self-imposed blog-post deadline.

It came down to this – either I admit, to myself and to the people I care about, the reality of my situation or I pretend I’m fine and shrink further into the isolation of hiding when I’m not.

If I have invited you to see this post it is because you are important to me. Whether you are family, a friend or a member of my online community – I want you in my life, in my real life. Not my pretend “I’m fine” life.

I need your support, understanding and encouragement while I muddle through learning how to thrive in spite of these life altering conditions.

The book Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain – A Survival Manual is available for purchase at the Sensorina Store.

  1. Thank you for sharing this video about yourself. The facts posted intermittently during the video were also very interesting. I admire that you can do such challenging adventurous things in your life such as scuba diving, etc.

  2. It’s great to see you find your voice in video, Lane. It’s such an impactful way to tell this story and give people a sense of your experience.

    I’m glad more of the people who love you will now have the chance to learn more and support you. Love and good fortune to you as you find your way to more and more good days.

  3. Nice job on the video, Lane. I am glad to learn more about how vibrant and energetic you really are, even though the proprioceptive input steals your energy so quickly. Thank you so much for sharing this post!
