anyone used a squeeze machine?

by
I just crawled into a box stuffed with a rolled up piece of foam rubber. It felt awesome. I  finished watching the movie "Temple Grandin". I relate so much to that woman it gave me chills.  It made me tear up more times than I can count. I'm not autistic, but I feel like I can relate a lot to them in ways.  I just get so physically tense sometimes for no real reason. Like, all this built up energy in my body, a restless feeling. Not even pawing can get rid of it. Exercise helps some. But laying inside this silly thing I just threw together was calming to me.  

I'm just one of those bizarre "try it before you judge it" people.

ps. I'm feeling pretty good lately after talking with several friends about my last "emo" journal. I know I seem erratic, it is hard to help living in such a way though. I really do appreciate all the comments you all gave and yes I have read them. It's good to know there's real people out there.

Nope, I wish lol.

I've heard of it and read a lot about Temple Grandin but never thought of using one.  When I was little I used to hide under a chair and wrap up really tightly when things were going really badly and that did work.

I've had the thought that there should be something like a Thundershirt for people.

I've been curious to know what it's like ever since I read her book :)

I'm at a diff place on the spectrum, but I've been all-but-diagnosed as an Aspie, so I can relate to a lot of what Ms. Grandin says. And what you say. So therefore: *snugs a bunny* n____________n

It's good reaching out to people, even if they're not physically present. A nice conversation always soothes the soul. *hugs tightly*

my squeeze machine consists of my dog sleeping on me, but i used to hang a hammock from the same spot above me and fill it with couch cussions ^.^

I have seen various "stimming" setups used by the autistic and I really like the concept.
