I realized I was an HSP from reading Elaine Aron’s book. I came across this meetup by chance.
Yes, “The Highly Sensitive Person” I also subscribe to Elaine’s mailing list.
I can become emotionally overwhelmed very easily, not always at the most convenient times. I need a lot of quiet time, which has made people view me as distant & unengaged.
I enjoy being outdoors, being in nature, I go whenever I can & love hiking in the mountains. Any hiking or outdoor activity will interest me.
Friendship & support
I was born & grew up in New Zealand; I came to the US about 24 years ago as a Post Doc & stayed to work in Biopharmaceuticals. I have lived in Seattle about 8 years. I have a broad range of interests from the Arts to outdoor activities.
Very helpful and supportive
