One of the maddening things about being a person with sensory issues is that the rest of the world fails to understand our completely sensible coping mechanisms!
Please watch this video to gain insight into why some children wriggle, tap feet or fingers and simply move around so much: Brain Highways: The Proprioceptive System.
Why do I find this topic so important? I have a lingering sensory processing disorder that leaves me with severe vertigo. I use specific techniques I learned in physical and occupational therapy lessons to cope with that.
I've always sympathized with people who pace, tap, and do other things to ground themselves in their present locations. Squirming in discomfort is, at times, not a sign of emotional distress. It's a sign of coping with missed "This is where I am" placement signals.

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.
You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?
A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.
I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.
I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.
Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.
