One step at a time

I think this quote form Martin Luther King really sums up living with SPD. Because everything is so overwhelming to my senses I always see the whole staircase and don’t think I will ever mange to get to the top. But if I break it down and take it step by step it’s more achievable.

  1. I just wanted to throw out there that you are truly inspiring! Iv never been aware of spd until raising my son, who is autistic (autisticentanglement) and even though it’s harder than heck for the parents, it’s only because we want to give our babies the kind of happiness they deserve, not because we are the victims. Thank you for sharing your views and experiences for people who truly rely on hearing them and becoming stronger themselves for it. 🙂

    1. Awww bless you that’s so kind of you to say! My parents also weren’t aware of SPD until I had occupational therapy. I can only imagine how hard it is being a parent of a child diagnosed with SPD because you only mean well and try so hard – my parents are awesome and I’m sure you are too! It’s not a problem at all 🙂 I started the blog to try and share my experiences and hopefully talk to other people with sensory problems it’s great talking to people who understand 🙂

      1. Like I feel about my son every day while he’s the only boy he knows who flaps and rocks, never hide from yourself because you will always be someone’s hero who is “struggling” with the same things. You inspire me so thank you!

  2. i always know that…but it wont make me work faster or at least as fast as others. i always think that i have less life experience than others. so i want to do more, do faster. i am exhausted and nervous all the time. Just dont want to be abandoned. tracing the social expectation is hard for a “non-normal” person… looking the others, they can easily set and finish a goal, get all the compliment.

    i have had final exam recently so there is much busy~ cant reply your email immediately but will be as soon as possible. 🙂

  3. I had no idea what SPD was until my daughter was diagnosed around 12 months and I still struggle to fully comprehend how complex it is at 22 months. This quote hit home for me. She loves to climb as a seeker but her body awareness doesn’t always connect with her desire to climb. So glad you have this blog and are sharing your personal insight into SPD.

    1. I wasn’t properly diagnosed until I was 8 I think – so it’s good that you’ve had an early diagnosis. I’m exactly the same – I like to rock climb, run etc but my body isn’t very coordinated and I constantly bump into things such as tables!!! Aww thank you – I just want to help everyone understand what life with SPD is like 🙂
