Hoodie is sensory overload; frozen air and needles, not so much.

This is a short follow up to an earlier post, in which I groused about Joey’s resistance to headgear, gloves and other accessories that could keep him safer in the winter.

Joey tunaToday, he had a blood test. It’s a routine thing, just checking various levels and factors of his medications.

As you see in the picture, he came out no worse for wear. He enjoyed a tuna foot long to break the blood test fast. In fact, he’s the least needle-phobic member of our family. He sits there calmly and watches the needle go in and the blood go out – stuff that would make me woozy.

So I wonder if there is a blogger on the autistic planet, grousing about how caregivers wear hats and gloves but don’t do needles because of our sensory issues.

  1. There is a good possibility. I have grwon inured to needles and all things medical testy. It comes with the territory and heart condition. Cardiologists like blood work!
