    Hello, due to a parent being on drugs,

    crack, cocaine, and a big alcoholic I was yelled at all the time, slapped around, and abused for the first 15 years of my life. Now I have a major sensitivity to tone of voice and a whole lot of trigger words that set me off. Since I was 15 I cannot handle sarcstic angry tones...

    I'm Not A Freak, I'm Hypersensitive

    So I'm Not Crazy?

    For most of my life, I have said that I am crazy. This is honestly how I have felt. Nobody else seems to be as aware of things as I am.    I know exactly what is baking in my house when I walk through the door. I can taste when a different brand of something is...
