Yesterday I was watching a lecture by Dr. Temple Grandin on autism spectrum disorders, coping methods, jobs suited to people on the spectrum, etc. One thing she talked about that I already knew of was this kind of squeezing machine she'd made for herself that she'd put herself in when she was stressed, and it calmed her down. It sounded terrible to me, but then she mentioned weighted blankets.

It was like a light went off. I feel like this is something I've craved my entire life and didn't realize it until just now.

I've always loved the lead vests they put on me when I get an x-ray taken, but I'd never thought much of it.

Problem is weighted blankets cost like $100, Jesus. I have a birthday coming up and my parents are all over this diagnosis, so maybe I can ask for that for my birthday. At least it should last years and years.
