7 yr old recognizes SPD!

by Cindy
(New Hampshire)

Tonight my oldest son & I are food shopping at Super Walmart. He's SO looking forward to buying goldfish there since our last Betta fish passed a few months ago. We are at the tail-end of the food department. I tell him we need some meat, not for him since his SPD effects his food choices (no meat except McNuggets)& his weight at 43 pounds on a good day!. He is in the cart (yes, he still fits!) and starts complaining about the smell. I said "What smell? It is all packaged up?". He continues to complain, hold his nose & gag a bit. So as we leave the meat section, he says "Mom, don't you know I have Sensory Dysfunction problems???".


Oh, yes my child, I think - ever since you have been in utero when you wouldn't put your head down resulting in a breech c-section. And, when you cried your 1st whole year of life unless you were attached to my breast or constantly in perpetual motion... Or as even 'til this day you complain about every tag, won't wear jeans, emotionally & physically upset easily & still choose french fries as a main dish 6 years later... I know oh so well... But love my tender-hearted sweet little boy just the same!


From a mom of 2 SPD boys, the youngest who has a twin sister (whom just tags in shirts bother)!

That Was Priceless - Thank You

Hey, I thought you were talking about my son who is 6 yrs. old, still fits in the cart, etc... until you mentioned the "in-utero" part, which is exactly how my daughter was. We're seeking a diagnosis, not easy to get one, but a mom's instincts are usually right.

Mine is a big girl as a result

My eight yr old daughter has so many issues and at 4'9" she is 130lbs because she won't be active for fear of falling or being touched by others and she eats four things, all high fat and taste about the same (all cheese).

I must admit, it is familiar from the start. Thanks for the story. I can relate 100 percent!
