    I've said for years that I'm "hyper sensitive", and how difficult it can be. Heat and cold, noise, and heaven help me all it takes is to hear a voice on the phone or to walk into a room to sense the moods of everyone present.

    I attribute it to growing up in a very chaotic alcoholic household. It was a control and safety mechanism that I developed in coping, unfortunately somewhere along the way it became a huge part of who I am.

    I even noticed recently at "action packed" movies that I get panicky and lightheaded as a result of all the overstimulation (sound and visuals). It's happened 3 times now.

    I find i am mega- sensitive to everything when Im in a flare up. Anything, light, noise, smells, everything is too much for me. I have to just go to bed.
