Sensory Processing Disorder presents some challenges, no doubt about it. As with most challenges, an appropriate sprinkle of humor certainly helps.
Like many people with Sensory Processing Disorder, I have a keen sense of smell. This is often worded on checklists as "Is overly sensitive to smells." or "Is bothered more than others by odors." I prefer "Has a very keen sense of smell!". A few weeks ago, I was walking out of an appointment with a friend and I said, "What's that smell?" He said "What smell?" But I was already marching forward, making a beeline for That Smell. It led me to Dante's Restaurant in Great Falls, Virginia, where we proceeded to have an excellent meal. I find many good things to eat this way. Another friend says that I'm the best smellin' woman he's ever met. It's not that I smell good, it's that I smell well...in fact, I smell spectacularly! Just one of my many SPD Super Powers!
We have to meet the challenges of SPD (I smell yucky things really well, too). Let's also celebrate the good! Do you have Sensory Super Powers or know someone who does? Tell us!
