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.
I read the one book many years ago.
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.
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.
Since I live in an outlying area, I would look for online discussion and support and occaisional group activities.
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.
