    Anybody else with mental issue..lol

    Its not a laughing matter, but I dont want people to feel sorry for me because I'm like any other regular person but I am a HSP( highly sensitive person) means I can feel things that most of the people cant like the smallest sounds and smells and I can read people easily and I'm especially sensitive to pain. Because of HSP I'm also very socially anxious so I have the hardest time interacting with people and I'm very depressed..
    I found a great support forum and I go there often, a lot of great people there.
    Anybody else out there like me?

    Well because I'm so sentive towards everything, I've developed my depression and social anxiety disorder. But I can feel things like people and how they are going to act before they do and whenever I meet someone in person, right away I can tell whether theyre a good/decent human being, saves me a lot of heartache. I just love observing people and theyre behavioral patterns, same with animals, its fascinating

    I'm bipolar and uninsured for the moment so life is hectic. I haven't been able to afford medication or any of that fun stuff so I'm just hanging on. It really stinks when I go to sleep at 4 or 5 am and then wake up at 7 am.

    Yeah, I got all the clinical depression stuff, but anyway...

    When I was a freshman at my college, we had to take a 3D class that involved a lot of drills, saws, metalworking, etc. There was a girl in my class who was highly sensitive like the way you describe -- she said it was a medical condition of sorts -- and the sounds of drilling and saws and even the radio would drive her CRAZY, plus styrofoam made her itch and all kinds of tiny stuff floating in the air would make her eyes burn and just about everything else would give her a headache, etc. About half the time, she'd be in tears by the end of the class. I felt bad for her because everyone treated her like she was just being bratty, but since I talked to her more, I knew that it wasn't brattiness. But I do have to admit, it was exhausting to be around her. But that's just because moods are contagious, and hanging around with anyone who's unhappy would probably make me unhappy.

    I'm good at reading people, too. I can usually tell within the first 5 min of talking to someone more than I should be able to LOL. Places, as well.

    feather i would like you to meet someone then, i thought i was good at reading people too. Until i met this one girl and she put up a front for 6 years as to who she really was. She was nice on the outside and an animal on the inside with no self control and no morals. Now shes just anouther stastistic of pregnant teens.
    But she could lie like a rug when she wanted to.

    I think in the good 'ol days all these symptoms use to be called being "human"

    Society today has decided to label every single minute thing as a disease or something that is not normal.

    I'm not down-playing the very serious diseases/disorders that are out there - by any stretch.

    It's just that we can never, ever seem to find the "fine-line" of a subject so that we don't go over it, because as humans we can never all seem to agree on anything.

    I bet I could spend a week researching and come up with 50 disorders that I have, yet, on most account I think I'm a 'normal human'.

    Empathy, I don't think what you said is a laughing matter at all. My sister is kind of like you. She's always been super-sensitive. I would give a seeming light squeeze to her, and she would scream about how it hurt. She was always able to taste, see, and hear things we couldn't normally hear, and she also had difficulty interacting with people.

    I think things will turn out fine for you. I've always known her to be an over-achiever. She seems to be getting along well now. She eventually made National Merit Finalist and is attending Berkeley. She has a boyfriend that loves her a lot and many many awesome friends.

    i'm actually a little surprised to find out that you guys have problems like these. i have problems with interacting with people too, but i've been blaming it on my parents for not teaching me any social skills and not spending time with me as a kid. i don't know what i am now...i know you'll think this is weird but i don't think i have any feelings. i can't feel happy and i can't feel sad either, which i guess is good. i just feel nothing. i know, not good. but i really feel that it's better this way.

    Re: Anybody else with mental issue..lol

    woah interesting
    I have an unusual phone phobia, well cant really describe it. Im alright talking on the phone with friends, or people that i talk to or see every day, but when it comes to making doctor's appointments, or calling someone that i dont know, i cant do it! I shake and get all nervous. Weird aye? I hate answering the phone when no ones home. Sometimes i dont bother to pick it up.
    I also have a hell of a time socialising amongst people i dont know, and usually cower in dark corners at parties, avoid people's eye contact, etc.
    I walk with traffic rather than against, because i always have this paranoia that people are watching me from their cars. I always feel uncomfortable and exposed whenever i go anywhere where theres a lot of people, although its alright if i have a friend with me. I stick to quiet safe alleyways rather than busy streets when i can.
    I havent got my drivers licence because im scared of any mistake that i might make, and someone on the road may see it.
    Im too nervous/scared to get a job, and scared of making a fool of myself or stuffing up.
    Thats just something to begin with....... anyone know whats wrong with me?
    i guess everyone has their own strange problems!

    Wow you are like my pshycic twin scribblygum, i have all of the SAME problems. phones, jobs, parties, haven't gotten my lisense. Took me all I had to get through drivers ed, especially since I didn't know anyone. One time me and my mom were going to go to Olive Garden to eat, but when we got there it was packed and I made her leave just because there were so many people there.

    I always thought it was something like social anxiety, but the more I experience the more I'm learning to cope with the fact that I'm going to have to meet new people no matter where I go! PM me sometime it'd be interesting to talk to you some more.
    From Emi
