    Okay, I'm going to start like everyone else did;

    because I don't know how else I should. I know, for a fact, that some people will just see me as attention seeking and a liar, but I don't care for attention, and I try my best not to lie above "I left my homework on my desk at home. Can I bring it in tomorrow?" I honestly do...

    Help! My Senses Are Taking Over :(

    Hello. I am a 26 year old floral designer and I have had most of my "problems" since I was born. I won't go into intense detail, so I'll keep it more to the point and simple. If anyone could give me some advice or if there's a doctor, etc out there that could help, I would be...

    Well...

    it is not eyesight   I have a heightened sense of hearing.  I tend to hear things that are going on in a different office.  I can always hear people approaching or a particular sound of an engine.  And I suppose that is why I tend to like to fill...

    Adhd Heightened Senses?

    I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in kindergarten and was put on medication almost right away, so I never got the chance to notice that I had better senses than most people. A couple of years ago, I started to refuse to take the pills because I noticed something just wasnt...

    Ever since high school I have had heightened

    senses that include sight, taste, hearing, and smell. I am able to tell who has been in the room based on the smell. This has included people who were there multiple hours before. I can seem to see very clearly in the dark. The worst is my sense of taste. Due to whatever issue...

    It Started About A Year Ago

    About a year ago, just after my 13th birthday I started noticing something different about my sense of hearing, when ever I am not concentrating on one sound my hearing seems to be heightened. As in I can hear someone whispering from the other side of the sports hall. Also I can...

    It Started With Instincts...

    When I was much younger I used to be able to read people like books. I could immediately tell if someone was lying and I would get upset sometimes because some people just stood out as being "bad". Even today I run into the occasional person I can't stand for no reason, even...

    My Heightened Senses Of Smell And Taste Are More A Curse Than A Blessing

    Anything that smells or tastes good is overly awesome to me. Anything unpleasant is absolutely revolting. It's a lot similar to having a heightened intelligence. Instead of ideas or concepts to pick apart and analyze, I'm able to discern all the flavors and scents to which...

    My Curse.

    This is gonna sound odd, so I might as well start from the beginning. From the time I was in pre-k I could hear better than any of the other kids. As time went on, I thought it was normal, what I could do. I hit elementary school, and my sight just randomly becomes more vibrant...

    An Interesting Occurance

    My story is an awfully long one, but, my experience with heightened senses is recent. I will start with this; ever since I was little, looking at people was like reading a summary to a book. Getting to know a person was like reading a personal dictionary. The way my mind works is...

    This is all going to sound like complete

    bullshit, but I guess I've turned to this site because I have absolutely no idea what to search the internet for. Here goes: I can feel the blood rushing through my veins, and I'm talking with normal "at rest" cardio activity - when I exercise, it feels like someone's opened a...

    Is It A Gift Or A Curse?

    This is going to be kind of long, but please keep in mind that all of this is true. All of this started when I was 11 years old. I was eating at Friendly's when I started having a pain in my stomach that was so horrible that my parents and I had to leave immiediately for the ER...

    Had heightened senses at one time in my life.

    All five senses. Lasted about two months. I did some research on this. Adrenalin/epinephrine is a naturally chemical that goes throughout the body. Due to high stress or anxiety. Used as a defensive mechanism to cope with the situation. The only thing that didn't match up...

    If my mum is coming to my school

    or if she's coming at home I get this really nervous feeling that she is. And 98% of the time I'm right. There's this "person" I meet with every afternoon. Strangely I can sense when this "person" is outside. It's kinda weird but it's so cool. I can even tell when this...
