Špela commented on Walk a mile in my shoes!

Actually i do not have any photos yet, but your link really helps, so i thank you for that and for your kindness. It is a big challenge, but that makes it even more a motivation. So knowing what living with AD means, will only keep us from never giving up. I will share everything new that happens regarding this project :-) Špela

Špela commented on Walk a mile in my shoes!

Hi, thank you for your response. So no, we have not conducted this kind of intervention before. This would be our first time testing it out. Based on countless hours spent with AD patients, there is one point that all of them make: "No one really understands how it's like to be in my skin". And that means no one, often not even parents, if they did't go through it themselves, really understands. The idea came from that and from the men experiencing birth pain :-) So that close ones who want to, could understand better and that bullies would try it, beacuse they would feel challenged (and they would want the award). We really think it would change the perspective of a lot of people. So if you have anymore questions, i would be more than happy to answer them.
