I can't remember when I became aware of the term HSP, but I always felt that I was more sensitive and easily overwhelmed than most. I learned about this group when it came up in a meetup search for book clubs.
Yes, I read The Highly Sensitive Person
I'm easily overwhelmed when there are a lot of strong stimuli in my environment. Ditto when I've got a packed schedule. I tend to stay away from parties. I like interacting with people one-on-one or in small groups.
Discussing books, going to museums, going on hikes
friendship and support
Hi, I'm looking forward to meeting other HSP's.
