Comment on Are you a Highly Sensitive Person? by JD.
I always thought everyone around me was the same way until I got older and did a lot of observing. I’ve been very good at hiding it but it does affect my health and overall well being. Major fight of flight response in a split second. Too many years of that and now I can’t sleep and have trouble relaxing. As sensitive as I used to be I do find that I have built a wall now and am much less sensitive (although there are serious cracks in that wall). It’s not an easy life.
