Moving forward, setting goals.

Had another talk with my therapist tonight. Things are going over pretty well actually. I discussed my plans for going back into college and she’s very supportive. She thinks that we can go to the student disability center and have them help give me the aid I need. Written notes, a quiet section to study at, a way to ask for help without needing to verbally ask, and a reduced course load.

I really drove in the fact that I have very sensitive hearing, above all other sensory issues. My hearing is the most affected. When I explained that I get distracted by the simple sound of someone writing on paper, that even with noise reducing earbuds I was able to hear the sounds of machinery and conversations in mcdonalds as well as hear the radio and pick out what song was playing. I can get headaches from the noise of the dishwasher and hear it across the room even. She said that it’s no wonder I have anxiety issues, the constant fear of noises definitely doesn’t help.

I explained the difficulty with transitions, and how anxiety about certain situations will linger even after the moment has come and gone. She seems really interested in that, and wants me to write down any specific transitions that I handle and wants to know just how I handle it and how i react.

Overall I think things are going to work out well in the long run, it’s just going to take a while to really overcome some of these issues.
