Im on a forum called www.brainfog.org which is for people with ME but looking at the lighter sillier side instead of the doom and gloom that some forums focus on.
A post was put the other day about 'highly sensitive people' now if you asked me I would have said I wasnt highly sensitive but I now realise I would actually have meant I wasnt 'paranoid' or 'touchy'
Being highly sensitive is something that so many people seem to be.
Although I have a high pain threshold in some ways because past history meant I couldnt react to pain other things are so amazingly true with so many ME people
I cant cope with things around my throat and even cleaning my teeth makes me gag
I cant cope with wool or 'itchy' things against my skin
I cant stand up and close my eyes without falling over
I cant walk in a straight line sober or drunk
I cant cope with loud noises
I cant sleep if theres any noise at all
I sniff food to see if its fresh because if it smells 'funny' I cant eat it
I find it so amazing that my friends with ME have similar problems
