does anybody here get overloaded by the white light from smartphones and tablets? if I use a smartphone or tablet for say an hour I come away highly anxious, racing heart, racing thoughts, etc this is something what has affected me for years I haven't owned a smartphone in nearly 3 years but only recently have I thought its a sensory issue. I get it using my tablet also.
Is it the screens or is it what you're doing with the screens?
I have come to think its is the screens yes, I did have social media accounts years ago what caused me anxiety not uncommon I know even for nt people, all have been deleted for years, now it happens regardless of the content I am viewing.
Do you watch TV or go to the cinema? How do you find those experiences?
not really unless its an interesting documentary, I feel overwhelmed after a film at the cinema I run outside to have a cigarette somewhere quite. my friend has a 64'' TV and I hate, it too bright!
How do you find the TV when you do watch something? Do you have some sort of flat-panel TV (LED/plasma) or an old cathode-ray-tube TV?
see if you can adjust the brightness, that may help. You also may ne able to add like a filter as well - I know you can on ipads
It's the blue light that causes problems mostly.
You can get glasses that help block blue light pretty well, quite cheaply.
I've never used them personally, I wear SSS tints, but I have two friends that work on monitors all day, and have said they help with the problems they have.
Pretty cheap, so might be worth a try.
