2020….. it’s been an education.

While it’s been a challenging year to say the least, it is one that has been unexpectedly lightened by moments of joy and self fulfilment and as I prepare to walk into my 40th year, I do so with a newfound clarity as to who I am, what I want from life and who I can rely on when faced with adversity.

This is my fight song….or should I say flight song!

I’m not sure I’ve ever been ‘normal’ what’s normal supposed to look like? Answers on a post card please.

Making sense of sensory processing.

So what does this look like in real life? Well (taking you back to the beach scenario) whilst a few grains of sands might be mildly irritating for some, to my son (who experiences hypersensitivity) it’s comparable to asking him to walk on glass.

They tried to make him go to school but he said snow snow snow.

So to the children who told my son because he is adopted 'he wasn't wanted' you couldn't be further from the truth and I'm going to tell your parents and others why.
