She does not have SPD, as a diagnosis, but 80% of us are on the spectrum, and since it's heriditary, I think of her sometimes. I also think my Dad has SPD, and he has SO MANY food issues - he's even had 2/3 of his bowel removed because of food issues.
So, I don't know if there is a connection, but given my family history, I wouldn't be shocked by it.
Wow! I've never heard this!
But since learning of DS's diagnosis, I've noticed some symptoms in myself. I don't do well in crowds, and after a while in IKEA I feel like I'm having a panic attack.
Oh, GFCF is gluten free casein free. Casein is milk protein, I believe.
Oddly, my son really likes seafood, but won't touch a hamburger. Not that that's a bad thing, I guess.
