About Me: Female, 62, Charlottesville, VA, member since Mar 2007
I am a tender-hearted, sensitive woman, but tough as nails when I have to be. Maybe I can blame that on being a natural red-head. Now at age of 60, I still don't feel a day older than 30. My body reminds me daily that I'm not.
I get this feeling that it's going to be a tough winter in Virginia this year!!
I know that the snow will come, but none yet. I sure was hoping for a White Christmas. May I wish all my friends a very Merry Christmas and a properous, peaceful and healthy New Year. God Bless all of you.
I feel the first days of Fall approaching. One of my favorite times of the year, next to Spring. Now the snow that will come, I can do without.
i read your forum postings about sensory overload. i just now read an article on spd (sensory processing disorder), very common in autism, but also noted in ms. like you, and probably many others, the description of this disorder is spot on in describing what happens to me. from the article: "Some neuroscientists liken SPD to a traffic jam in which all the sensory input being processed by the brain just stops." a busy restaurant, even a party in my living room, has me longing for a dark quiet corner. thanks for helping to lead me to find more information. and a happy, and quiet, new year to you!
