THE WIND ON MY SKIN


When I'm out in the wind.

And,

Outdoors are too bright.

The skin around my eyes,

Tighten and wrinkle up.

Closing in.

It's hard to see.

It's hard to think.

It's hard to do anything,

When the weather,

Hits me this way.

I rug my eyes.

They begin to ache.

It's overwhelming.

Annoying.

Beyond agitating.

It wipes me out.

I have to get away.

And if I don't

My restless state,

Grows and grows.

Until I break,

Or,

A shower.


"The central nervous systems ability to process tactile sensory input is distorted in the *person with SPD and causes the *them great discomfort.

Their brain may register even the most subtle sensations as extreme irritation or even painful and *they may respond in an abnormally reactive way such as grimacing or pulling away from the stimulus."

- SPD Australia.
