It's interesting you mention a heightened sensitivity to sound etc. I'm not bi-polar (I don't understand much about bi-polar disorder but enough to know that I lack the manic episodes of it). However, I do hate noise - it makes me want to run away and hide my head in a dark place - and my eyes are so sensitive to sunlight I have to wear sunglasses if the sun is out at all. As for touch, when I am depressed I don't want to be in contact (physical or mental ore emotional) with anyone. It even extends to not wanting to eat or drink because I don't want the contact with the food or drink. It comes and goes.

This does exist. I don't think you are crazy. I experience this as well. I hear things that are super quiet, am super sensitive to light, touch and pain. People like this generally have sensitive stomaches, sensitive emotions, sensitive skin, etc. It's almost like we have a heightened awareness of the world around us and of ourselves. One thing you might want to mention to your therapist or think about. I also have bipolar disorder. When I am manic, I am incredibly sensitive to everything around me. I just can't tolerate any sounds, sights or touch from other people. Just a thought. Jenn
