I feel dysregulated a lot of the time. It’s not surprising, as I am managing sensory overload in my body almost constantly, and it can be exhausting. Right now I am trying to write this while my pain is turned up to the high setting, and I am finding it very difficult to think straight.
One of the few things that helps me is physical touch and connection. There is something magical about skin to skin in particular, and the sensation of being held that is great for calming the nervous system.
