Yes,for most of my life I have been highly sensitive to crowds, noise, light, and other stimuli when depressed. Only recently have I learned that this sensitivity is correlated with my mood and how well the meds are working. I can only describe this feeling as one of being overstimulated: it really does hurt in a way, as if I am all exposed nerve endings. At these times I must get to a dark, quiet place--I can endure it, and have managed to for most of my life, but now I recognized that it is part of the depression and I know what I need to do to get some relief. It also helps to recognize that it is not a personal failure or an inability to deal with the world. It's a painful symptom of depression.

I wouldn't wish this experience on anyone, but I am glad to hear about others who have it, because I don't feel so alone.
