It took a good 6 hours for my scalp to calm down yesterday. The intense itching and then scratch, scratch, scratch. Brain and body totally overloaded. My scalp itching is one of the first warning signs that my sensory system is starting to crack under seen and unseen loads.
The load yesterday was definitely seen, it was IN.MY.FACE. I had to excuse myself and go sit outside under a tree and rock back and forth to calm myself.
I can calm myself. I have skills now, tools in my toolbox. Let me use them please. Don't judge me or my tools.
Scalp is calmer now, but I still feel the weight of yesterday.
