When I first learned of my sensory processing disorder, I asked myself these questions. Of course one of the most obvious struggles I had was making eye contact. My most immediate response was to keep my head down. In my attempts to make eye contact, I started with generally looking in the direction of the person that was speaking with and focusing on a background object. After mastering that I began to look at an object or piece of clothing the person would wear. Then finally I would look at facial features like eyebrows, lips, or nose. Then finally I was able to make eye contact but it still was quite awkward it was overly intense and I wouldn’t blink after a while so my eyes would get watery. Though I often would play it off as if they were allergies or something in my eye. Until I realized I could maintain comfortable eye contact if they were a certain distance away from me 4 feet to be exact anything closer and I began to look away.
