Exclamation Occupational therapy-starts tomorrow! eek!

I finally got a appt with a occupational therapist who specializes in sensory processing disorder, but it's tomorrow! EEK! it was tomorrow or sometime in march....

I'm SUPER anxious about it because it's different from the therapy I'm used to(DBT/talk therapy)

Anybody here been to occupational therapy before? what's it like??

AHHH! I'm so anxious!!

ooOOo it was great! I got to be in this huge layered hammock made of lyrica fabric for most of the interview, she pushed it like a swing, I felt so much better about being there. then we did some other exercises one involved being on this swing that was like a padded post and throwing beanbags into a target thingy. Then there was this weird brushing thingy. and at some point I'll start this special therapeutic sensory listening thing.

overall it was fun!!



my next appt is Thursday and we're going to work in the pool!

I loved the pool, we played volleyball for 20min as a cardo exercise, then we did this balance board thing to improve my balance.
then we did a really weird thing called watsu, where I wore a float belt and thigh floats and a neck float, and she moved me around and i was supposed to relax and be like seaweed, it was really hard to relax at all.

I can't wait till next week! I love swimming

So glad to hear you're enjoying it....that sounds like it would be so much fun being floated around like seaweed..I'd probably fall asleep while floating around in the pool LOL

Hopefully next you'll be able to relax a bit and enjoy it, sounds like this could be the beginning of something great for you

Can't wait to hear how your next session goes.
Have a great week end!!
