Friday Finale

I like to get dizzy.
I like the way things look when I’m dizzy.

Spinning makes me happy.

I rhyme.

It makes sense to me.

It gives me order when there is none – when something’s not right.

I talk loudly when I’m anxious.

Talking loudly makes people pay attention.

It makes the anxiety better because someone is paying attention.

I don’t like loud noises.

They hurt my ears.

They scare me.

I move.

I don’t know why – my body makes me move.

I need to move a lot and I can’t relax until I do.

I like order, structure.

I get anxious when things change – when I’m heading into something unknown.

I don’t like crowds.

I chew on anything in my hands when I’m overwhelmed or “bored”.

When I’ve had too much I can’t hear you.

I’m not ignoring you – I simply can’t make my mind focus because it’s been working too hard.

I need down time everyday – time when no one talks to me and I get to zone out.

It helps me reorganize my brain.

I like tight squeezes.

I love when you give me deep pressure in my shoulders.

I love having my legs pulled up against my belly so I’m in a ball and being squeezed.

I need my Blue Bear and my heavy blankets when I fall asleep.

I need it to be dark.

I am emotional and can’t always control how I respond.

I love with all my heart and all my soul.

I like to be successful.

If you believe in me then I believe in myself.

I am a child with Sensory Processing Disorder

I believe I can fly – I believe I can touch the sky.
