What helps with this sensory overload? The lights at stores, the noise, the people, ALLLLL lights trigger this hell! What helps with this? Xanax or something? Am I going to have to become a Xanax junky? So messed up how your life can change in the blink of an eye!

I'm so sorry to hear this is happening to you.

I don't get triggered by light, but my trigger is feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed when talking to people. It's terrible. Somedays I don't even want to talk to anyone. I was givin xanax from my doctor for only emergency attacks but iv been too scare to take them. Lol too anxious to take anxiety meds. What a life!

But in all seriousness, iv read online that xanax will only help for a bit then your body will get use to them, so maybe only use them for emergencies.

Have you worn sunglasses inside? Yeah people stare and think you're stoned, but really who cares. Just a thought.

I'm so sorry I wasn't much help, I just wanted to post so you wouldn't feel so alone.

I hope for quick healing, xo.
