Overstimulation is exhausting. Period. A poster on a wall, a show on the tv, the grocery store, or even a glance at a busy phone can cause overstimulation. We get swamped by more experiences, sensations, noise and activity than we can cope with. According to brain injury explanation, “Many people with brain injury are affected by sensory overstimulation. Sensory overstimulation means that almost every sensory stimulus causes an excessive response in the nervous system. ‘Healthy people are perfectly able to regulate a continuous flow of stimuli.’ Ariana van Schaaijk of brain injury explanation explains ‘but many people with brain injury and other brain-related conditions are extremely sensitive to light, visual patterns, fragrance, motion and noise, especially for background noise. These people see the brain injury change their lives dramatically. They cannot or can hardly participate in public life. They see a strong decline in their social life and participation in work is no longer possible or no longer in the same function...’ Sometimes the only answer to escape this, what seems like trap, is closing your eyes, and leaving the situation. Sensory overstimulation is often overlooked as exaggeration, but we all know how it feels to be flooded by everything at once. So take a breath, find a quiet and dark place, and close your eyes to help. ... See more

🧠Spark curiosity, learning and connection by dropping your answer in the comments below👇 . When I first had my injury in 2011, there was very little awareness surrounding concussions. . I'll never forget googling Post Concussion Syndrome and seeing all the major publications listed it as likely "psychological." . When I combed through the research, it was much the same... . Fortunately, education has shifted palpably in the last few years. . So, how can we quicken the spread of awareness? . Brene Brown, offers some insight... . "You have to have some level of knowledge or awareness before we can get curious. We aren't curious about something we are unaware of or know nothing about... The more we know, the more we want to know." . So, let's help folks get curious... . What are some things people DON'T KNOW about living with a concussion? . Health Care Providers and family, I want to hear from you too! What have you learned? OR ask any questions you may have🤔 . Remember, the more we know the more we want to know! . Join the conversation and help shift the narrative around concussions. .
