An Autistic Visually Stimming

It’s like visual ASMR, I guess.  You know how people say ASMR gives you a relaxing, pleasant sensation that helps you go to bed?  I watch slime videos and glitter videos and visual stim videos before bed, almost every day on Instagram, and it’s how I fall asleep.

Hi everyone!  So, I’ve been doing a series where I talk about stimming and shared some stims of mine.

This stim – I want to talk about visual stimming, and this is a stim that I have had (or this specific stim tool) since I was probably … I don’t even know.  I may have been in diapers still when I got this.

I’ve had this since I was a very small child, and it is a – well, what I call … my family called it … It was my magic dream wand, because I would sit in bed and just do this and watch the glitter fall until I was calm enough to fall asleep.  Because I was stimming and relaxing my mind at the end of the day by just watching the glitter fall.

It’s like visual ASMR, I guess.  You know how people say ASMR gives you a relaxing, pleasant sensation that helps you go to bed?  I watch slime videos and glitter videos and visual stim videos before bed, almost every day on Instagram, and it’s how I fall asleep.

Visual stimming is just something I’ve always done, and this is something I’ve had, like I said, for a very, very long time.  I love this thing, and it’s actually like, messed up on the top from me chewing on it when I was little.  “What’s up, Doc?”  That’s not what this is for.

Do you have any … have you ever had one of these?  I think a lot of us had these as kids.  Let me know if you had one too, and if you loved it as much as I love mine.  I’ll talk to you guys next time.
