Does anyone else here get really spaced on deodorant? I do. I wonder if it's related to any of the conditions I have (Asperger's, Schizoaffective disorder, and OCD).

If you think this is the case, I'd look into ingredients. I actually found out a while ago that I was allergic to one of the ingredients in my deodorant, and switching brands made a huge difference!

It's also smart to consider that your body needs to use those sweat glands to remove toxins... I've heard of different things that can be done like making a paste of baking soda and water, and using that (it gets rid of the smell but doesn't prevent persipration). If deodorant is giving you problems then maybe try something like that?
