SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDER WIN!
I, Lauren Kathleen, went to a concert and didn’t need ear plugs!!!!
Guys, I can’t even begin to tell you how soo very very very important this is, because my SPD effects me the most with noise. And has since I was a child.
I’m completely anxiety med free, and I successfully did this without medicine!
I’m so so so proud. It sounds dumb, but this was a g-d big deal!
This was my present from my step mom for my 20th birthday next Wednesday!
We saw the Paper Kites, which is like my favorite band in the world.
They’re Australian and they’re amazing musicians.
They’re quiet and soft and perfect for me!
This series of pictures makes me laugh, because the first is in a bathroom (which looked damn cool) and the last one was me (in the dark) celebrating the moment I no longer needed ear plugs.
I wanted to post this to show people that you may struggle with things your whole life, but every once in a while the world gives you something to celebrate, and I am celebrating my progress and my body’s acceptance of my choice!
Because when I did it I HAD NO ANXIETY OR PANIC ATTACK AFTER!
So tonight I celebrate myself and my progress.
It’s funny how you have hard days and doubt yourself then the world (or God) gives you something to keep you going.
Love is real guys. And it’s the most powerful thing in this planet.
By the grace of pure love was I able to get through tonight, and I am thankful for every single second. #thepaperkites #laurensmedicaljourney #spdwin #sensoryprocessingdisorder #HugeWin #LOVEISREAL
