Hi All. I suffer from anxiety, social anxiety and panic attacks which have come to a head recently due to work stress/loss of my Dad and have read recently about highly sensitive people and am sure I am one as I tick nearly all the boxes on the checklists for them. Anyone else heard of these or think they are one? Do they exist or is it just another label?
Just to give you an idea about some of the characteristics. I am incredibly sensitive to light and sounds, I get very stressed very easily, I hate loud/busy places, I feel other peoples emotions and put myself through what they are going through (good/bad). Lots of other traits too. Your comments would be very welcome.
