11, and then 15 on gg's other linked test.

Better than I used to be, but still pretty sensitive. This has gone hand in hand with ADD for me for a long time. Medication reduces it maybe 50% - one of the main reasons I stay on it (Strattera).

THE worst for me is visual stuff - lights, colors, too much clutter. Unmedicated, I used to freak out and cringe and get a stomach ache in stores like, for example, Target, where everything is RED AND bright AND busy....arrrgh!!! Much better these days, though.

It's great for others in your life to get a bit educated on this, because often if they are not this way themselves, they just have NO clue what you're so uncomfortable about. It's hard to explain, too.

My T. knows we can never start a session until he dims the lights, and that if he raises his voice, just in an excited way to make a point, I will sometimes startle or cringe....

Great post, Poet :-)
