Noise sensitivity

Today during lunch I had an Autism moment that took my coworkers by surprise.  I was spaced out in my own little world watching Sponge Bob Square Pants on my mobile phone when all of a sudden someone dropped an empty bottle on the table.  I got caught off guard as I did not anticipate this occurrence.  I involuntarily jumped and almost fell out of the chair I was sitting in.  I had these reactions before so it was nothing new for me.  Everyone at the table stared at me with a “what the heck was that all about?” look.  They quickly got over it but it was a minute of silent awkwardness. What I did realize today is that regardless of how many interventions I’ve had episodes like this are going to occur.  I can not always prepare myself for it but I can handle myself in an appropriate way.

Thank you for reading!
