Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Instead of creating one or two posts for the month of March, I am going to be posting weekly! This is because I have a theme that I can’t talk about in just one post, and that is sensory.
I was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder before I was even diagnosed with ARFID, and it is very common to have this if you have ARFID. If you don’t know what it is, it basically means your body avoids sensory, or seeks it. I avoid sensory, especially when it comes to food. It also makes your senses stronger, meaning that smells, feelings, sounds, sights, and of course, tastes can be overwhelming for you. So, this month, I will be posting once a week about four of the five senses, where I write about how I deal with them, what coping skills involve those senses, and more! I won’t be including taste, because that’s what I almost always write about!
Anyway, I hope you are all excited for the posts during March! Have a great week!
