I Am So Relieved!

The other day, my friend told me that her counselor told her that she is a "Highly sensitive personality type". I didn't even know there was such a thing! Well, she described it in her, and I was telling her that that sounds like me. So, I came home tonight, and did some research on it. I am astounded! I am relieved! I know for a fact that this is what is different about me, and has been my entire life! All these things, these feelings, right on the button! I've been teased in my family for being sensitive (easily upset) my whole life. I thought something was wrong with me! I am just so glad to know. Now I can really get to know myself, and move forward!

Oh, i just found out about Highly sensitive. And i think im one. Growing up my family and school kids picked on me.<br />
I want to get control of this. But im still mad at my family. i have to understand that they were just uneducated about this.<br />
Now i have to focus on myself. Make things better for me. But dont know how.<br />
I do have an appointment with a counselor. I went to him before but he never mention me being Highly sensitive. I will asked him what is wrong with me. Doctors told me that i have anxiety and gave me medicine. but medicine didnt help.<br />
I wish not to take medicine cause im hightly sensitive to the side effects. No one dont or wont understand that. They just want to give me medicine. Thats all.
