Today was an interesting day. Because my case manager has been so busy and her role within my health insurance is changing my appointments are now about 30 minutes a week instead of the usual hour, I assume if I needed a full hour she would be there for me. First things first, yesterday I found out I got into San Diego State University which is/was my first choice for attending school but would require a move and some big changes. I earlier had sort of written it off because I was not stable enough, but now am actually considering it. Anyways, if you follow me on my blog Facebook page you would see I was “feeling stoked!” My case manager practically cried today when she found out, she was so proud and excited. It also happens to be her alma mater. The main reason I applied is it’s the only college in the state that has a BA in LGBT studies.
Next I mentioned how I went to 20 somethings group last night and after group, one of the members was talking about a co-worker who had to move office cubicles because of the strong scent of another co-workers perfume/cologne. It was a good opportunity to bring up Sensory Processing Disorder, and it being a spectrum and the complexities. I also explained my history with it. While recanting the story to my case manager she was surprised I had so many issues with it, as we have never talked about it all together in one session, she suggested I get an evaluation for ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders) because of these and other symptoms I have, she’s going to talk to the therapist about it. I feel torn; another diagnosis, possible more resources especially if I’ll be making this big step towards moving. There’s always something new.
