Hi, Im hannah.. Im 10 years old and some of these things i do.

I sometimes cry when other children cry. I cant wear jeans and i still sometimes throw tantrums. It is very hard and frustrating and sometimes a bit embarrassing.

I dont know if i have SPD yet. It's still being worked out. Ive been the doctors 3 times now and they said they think ive probably got SPD.. Sometimes you feel like your the only person like this. But when you read these sights you suddenly find someone exactly like you.. And its awesome!
