When and how did you become aware that you're an HSP? And how did you learn about our group?

About 1984 I met someone who told me about it and immediately knew that's what was going on. I've never met others though.

Have you read any of Elaine Aron's books about the HSP trait? Which ones?

I read the one book many years ago.

How have you experienced being an HSP? Please share a couple of examples of how being Highly Sensitive affects your life.

I've always hated groups over about 3 people; noise, smells, bright light. Not only has this contributed to low self-esteem, I haven't progressed in a career by knowing enough people.

What sort of activities do you enjoy? Besides just "meeting to talk," what sort of activities (if any) would you enjoy, as part of an HSP meetup group?

I play Renaissance music (it's subtle!) and motorcycles (with very quiet exhaust pipes!). I would enjoy doing subtle sensory experiences like being quiet in the outdoors, art museums and unusual music with others like me.

What do you hope to get from your membership in our HSP meetup? (i.e. friendship, activity partners, support, networking, etc)

Since I live in an outlying area, I would look for online discussion and support and occaisional group activities.

Introduction

I've been waiting for you! I already feel less odd seeing some of the messages here. I live in Bremerton so don't get out a lot but already feel part of a supportive network.
