Is this possible?
My best friend recently learned that she was diagnosed as SPD as a child. I've known her since we were in the 1st grade and she's never seemed out-of-place, she's always had many friends and done very well in school. She said she's never noticed it before because when she was very young she taught herself how to deal with it and overcame it before she knew what it was.
Is it possible for someone to teach themselves to get over a disorder at a young age, or any age? And is it possible to a person to teach himself or herself to overcome other disorders as well? I'm curious to understand her situation. She definitely has some of the symptoms, for example, she will only eat extremely bland foods and has to wash all of her clothes a certain way or else she won't wear them. She's also said she doesn't feel emotions as oftenly or strongly as others. I'm wondering if anyone can answer this question for me. Thanks for reading.
