My dd is 13 and she drives me crazy sometimes. She can't stand noises, like me breathing, the sound of me chewing, tapping my fingers, moving my tongue inside my mouth, any little noises that i can't even really hear, she hears and it drives her bonkers. She's always telling me to be quiet. I try to ignore her most of the time but sometimes I get so annoyed with her that I want to scream.
She has other sensory issues that are not quite as annoying to me, but irritating nonetheless. She can't stand the way certain clothes feel, can't stand certain foods bc of the texture. She won't sleep with a top sheet bc it moves during the night and bugs her.
In addition to little noises she hates loud noises. When she was little she would cry and cover her ears if we went somewhere loud, but now she tolerates it to some extent, but she still doesn't like going to the movies, concerts, anywhere with large crowds. She's also a bit fanatical about germs sometimes. She hates using public restrooms, but she also hates washing her hands bc she has dry skin and the water dries her hands out. If her hands get dry, they will burn and itch like crazy. Anybody else have a kid like this?
