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 think you accurately define the problem as sensory overload. Department stores, with their gaudy displays of mirrors and chrome, would routinely cause my head to swim and initiate a panic spell. I had them for 10 years or more, before my brain adjusted and calmed down. I would

think dark sunglasses would help alleviate the stimulus somewhat. Recognizing and understanding what is happening gives you some sense of control over the situation.
