Merry Meet!This is a little exercise that I learned a while back. The rules are quite simple: just tell us what obstacles in your life you've overcome. The purpose is (allegedly) to show others that…Continue
Merry meet! I'm a solitary eclectic Wiccan - I believe that there just might be a coven somewhere in my small town, but I actually prefer practicing by myself. I'm not usually on during the day - my job is pretty demanding. But I'm on in the mornings and afternoons. I've formed connections with the Norse gods more than Celtic, and I've been drawn intensely towards Loki.
I'd like to give a small tribute to my Beauty, my only friend at the time, and whom I considered my sister. She passed away on October 17th, 2006. I miss her so much, and I hope that she enjoyed her time with me - I know I treasured each moment with her.
I have Sensory Processing Disorder. You can look it up if you wish, but it's not too important. I lived for over fifteen years without a diagnosis. I'm writing an autobiography specifically about my life with SPD, and I hope that I can get it published. People need to know about this disorder, because it's more common than you may think. And being undiagnosed may just be one of the worst things you can imagine; I know from experience.
Finally, I'd love to give another shout-out to my incredible friends. I love you all, and I'm so so happy that you accept me for exactly who I am! This is for Lauren, Emily, the other Emily, Lizzie, Eliza, Molly, Kathy, Joanna, and of course my Beauty. I can't describe how much you give me hope. :)
I thank Loki for giving me the strength to get through my fifteen years of being undiagnosed, and all my years after my diagnosis to deal with it. I also thank Her for my wonderful friends, without whom I wouldn't be here today.
Sensory Processing/Integration Disorder
My Sense: Touch
Note: Background knowledge of Sensory Processing Disorder is suggested.
Having Sensory Processing Disorder is a living hell. I am, and always have been, angry. Every day. I know that there is something out there that I'm just not getting, and I'm never going to get. Knowing that is more horrible than anything else. Because I know of it, but I can never get a glimpse of it. And it hurts. Every single day, it…Continue
