Adults with sensory processing disorders

I hope this post doesn't start a commentroversy, but I'm not sure where to go with this. In the last few months, it has become pretty clear to me that it's likely I have a mild sensory processing disorder, stemming from proprioception issues that were never diagnosed/treated when I was a child. I know some ways to help myself (weighted blanket, exercises that stimulate bi-hemispheric brain/body activity, time-outs to mentally regroup, meditation, etc.), but I feel so...weird. As a 40-something adult, what the hell do I do with this?

To be clear, this is not a profound disorder. I've looked at online assessments and nothing really sticks out. Based on those, I would likely be assessed as normal. I'm not trying to hop on a bandwagon, but something clearly is off, I feel like I need help and resources to deal with this, and I'm not sure it's out there for someone like me. So if anyone has any books or online resources to recommend, I would be very grateful. I just want to understand what's going on, and how I can help myself.
