SPD commute in NYC!
Rachel Simone is the admin of the best SPD adults who have it support group on Facebook. She has it too off course. But, unlike me, she doesn’t have ASD or ADHD. But, for this utube video she shared today (And she knows I’m sharing it here too, off course) the fact that we both have SPD is enough. According to recent research. (see spdfoundation.net/otherdisorders.html) Most people with ASD have SPD. However, most with SPD DON’T have ASD.
As you should know, some with ADHD have SPD. But, she doesn’t have that either. Which is living proof you don’t need either to have SPD.
Anyway. I like her SPD experience’s demo- so, you can get a better taste of what life with it is like. I recommend watching it atleast twice. Especially if you are different. However, if you have SPD, make sure your ready for about a 5 minute commute, in one bustling, major city! And for you. Turn the sound slightly down.
Do, I relate to her experience? Somewhat. Do I understand it in a very real way. Yes. But, the details for that, is for anouther time. And my next post will have a link to her blog! Which is all about SPD research and stories.
