I was nominated for this award by the super dooper lovely Alex Könst at aaaaleivkai.wordpress.com. Check out her blog if you have the chance – it is a fantastic blog which is very insightful and written in a beautiful way.
Thank you Alex for nominating me!
Here are the rules (as written in Alex’s blog):
- Post the award picture on your blog (Tick!)
- Write a short paragraph about yourself and what your blog means to you (Okeydokey…)
- If you could be any animal, what would you be? (Ooooh…)
- Pick ten nominees. (Right then)
My name is Emily, I’m 21 and I have Sensory Processing Disorder. My background: An occupational therapist diagnosed me with SPD when I was in primary school. I have found OT the most helpful form of therapy, I’ve tried lots of different therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and therapy sessions with CAHMS (child and adolescent mental health service, UK) however I found these unhelpful and these made me feel worse. I also have anxiety issues, mild OCD, hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) and severe dyslexia (I was only assessed and told I was dyslexic when I was 19!).
My blog is UK based I want to bring people everywhere together to discuss their sensory problems and how they cope with their everyday lives. I want it to be recognised that sensory problems aren’t something children necessarily grow out of but learn to deal with for the rest of their lives.
Okay so I think I would be a… sausage dog! I just love them, they are so small and tiny and long and low to the ground and think they are so adorable and funny 🙂
Okay so my ten nominees are…
