Yeah, my son's OT has made me more aware of the seriousness of my lifelong sensory issues. I am taking yoga now to improve my low muscle tone. I don't know about a cure, but sensory integration therapy can really improve quality of life. DS has gone from being terrified of people one year ago to asking me to invite his friends over this week. Today a dog barked at us while we were outside, and instead of covering his ears and panicking, he waved and said, "Hi, dog."
My DH also has plenty of sensory issues, and he has used his personal experience to help DS go from an all-liquid diet at age 2 to now enjoying a wide range of solid foods. I think compassion is the key to overcoming a lot of the problems with SID.
