Benefits of music when living with a chronic condition.

If you suffer from Asperger’s, Autism, Tourette’s syndrome and sensory processing issues, his music can help, too.

7 Tips to help with sensitivity to light and noise

tips7 Tips to help with sensitivity to light and noise

There are many chronic conditions in this world. In a recent centers for disease control and prevention article, they stated that “As of 2012, about half of all adults—117 million people—have one or more chronic health conditions. One of four adults has two or more chronic health conditions.” You can read the full article here: http://www.cdc.gov/chronicdisease/overview/ I know that my condition comes with sensitivity to noise and light. I’ve also heard of other chronic conditions experiencing symptoms of sensitivity to noise and light too. I want to share with you some tips that I have found to be helpful coping with these symptoms.

Watch TV and movies with subtitles if you are sensitive to noise. When I was ultra-sensitive to noise, my caregiver (my mom) would set the TV to where she would watch it with subtitles. That helped keep my brain quiet and she was still able to watch TV. It’s important to keep your mind calm and quiet when dealing with sensitivities to noise.

Identify your triggers. You may only be bothered by certain noises, so it’s important to know your triggers. Whether its programs with suspenseful music or big crowds of people, you will need to know what noises bother you so you can limit them. Do your best to limit and avoid the types of noises that are triggers.

When going outside, where sunglasses. If you are sensitive to the light, it is critical to protect your eyes by wearing sunglasses. I am giving away a free pair of black polarized Bamboo Hybrid Sunglasses. You can enter to win them here: Polarized Sunglass Giveaway – 2 Winners and here: Brand Name Sunglasses/Prescription Glasses Giveaway – 8 Winners! 

Keep your cell phone on vibrate. Instead of having a ringer, you can put your cell phone on vibrate. This will help limit the noise.

Draw the curtains. During the day, the sun can get very bright in some homes. If it gets bright and you are sensitive to light, it’s helpful to draw the curtains so that you do not have a sun glare.

Be honest. If your symptoms are acting up and you are with others, it’s best to be honest. Explaining your situation will most likely be of benefit to you because the people around you can be more sensitive and understanding. People may not understand you facial reactions to the stimulation around you. Just being in the sunlight can cause my eyes to tear.

Don’t have multiple things on at once. When you are home by yourself, or in the car, you have complete control over the noises, so be sure to limit them. Don’t have the TV and music on at the same time. Limit your noise. Focus on one thing at a time instead of having multiple noises and devices on. It will lead to a more peaceful and quiet environment.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Comment below with any other tips you have if you are sensitive to noise and light! And be sure to enter to win a pair of sunglasses here: Polarized Sunglass Giveaway – 2 Winners and here: Brand Name Sunglasses/Prescription Glasses Giveaway – 8 Winners!

Surviving Chronic Illness Through Acceptance

Acceptance

Alanna Wong writes about surviving trauma through acceptance.

Surviving Chronic Illness Through Acceptance

Today I am continuing my series on the seven qualities needed to survive chronic illness and overcome struggle. The first quality I wrote about is resilience, the second is strength, courage is the third, the fourth is love which brings us to the fifth quality, acceptance.

The fifth quality that a person needs when surviving chronic illness is acceptance from the people around them. Acceptance is extremely important when surviving chronic illness and overcoming a struggle. I never really knew the importance of acceptance until I personally experienced going through a traumatic experience. When you go through a tough time you begin to learn who accepts you and who doesn’t. Learn to appreciate and acknowledge the people who do not judge you in a negative way. Ask yourself, “Am I acknowledging and respecting that person’s kind treatment?” Or am I trying to find acceptance in people who are not able to give me the acceptance that I need.  Keep the ones who accept you close to you. If someone doesn’t accept you during your hardship, it may be time to move on.

So what does acceptance mean?  Acceptance is welcoming. It is letting go of your disappointments. It is seeing the positive. Acceptance is loving the person in the state that they are in and not trying to change or fix them. Acceptance is not blaming. It is not demanding. Acceptance is understanding. Acceptance is inclusion. Acceptance is love. Acceptance is what every person needs especially when going through a traumatic experience. Acceptance is checking in with the person that is struggling. Acceptance is sharing a moment in life together. Acceptance is being kind. Acceptance is having time. Acceptance is approval. Acceptance is sticking around.
