This is what I look like in my illustrations on this blog:
And this is what I look like in the real world:
My name is Kelly. I am – right now that is – 26 years old.
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. Verbally, I’m quite efficient.
The purpose of this blog is for me to have a place to share my thoughts about living with this type of disability, with a humorous twist. Thinking not-so-funny things are actually funny has been my greatest coping mechanism.
I suppose that’s all for now.
Here’s some more facts about me, everybody loves facts:
- I’m also an artist, like a legit artist: http://www.kellydillonart.com
- Harry Potter is the greatest thing ever
- I also am fond of zombies, mermaids and faerie-folk
- I’m quiet, not shy
I will be graduating with my bachelors degree in psychology December 2013I have my bachelor’s degree in psychology. Go me.
- gardening is pretty cool too
