Well. Where to start?
This is what I look like in my illustrations on this website:
And this is what I look like in the real world:
The title of this blog – Eating Off Plastic – originated from the fact that I eat off of plastic plates because the sound of glass plates nearly kills me. Plastic (or paper) all the way!
Some relevant things about me:
I’ve been diagnosed with a sensory processing disorder (age 6), depression/anxiety, high functioning autistic spectrum disorder, hyperacusis and astonishing emotional bounce-back. All this means that my body is hypersensitive to my environment. I am particularly disturbed by sound, but all my senses are heightened.
The purpose of this blog is for me to have a place to share my thoughts about living with this type of disability, (yes, I consider it a disability), with a humorous twist. It’s also for people to find support, information, answers and laughs. You can always talk to me by clicking here: Contact
Thinking not-so-funny things are actually funny has been my greatest coping mechanism, and I like to spread the joy around. Like a joy germ. EW…yay? (2020 edit: well, that previous bit didn’t age with with covid-19, but here we are…)
Here’s some more facts about me:
- I’m the Creative Director at Life Ingredients!
- Neurodiversity advocate ❤
- bookworm; hot beverage drinker; sweets lover; Muggle
- BA Psychology from SUNY New Paltz
- gardening is pretty cool too
