When I was younger, as a teen and young adult, I used to do daredevil things such as jump 20 feet in the air on my motorcycle dirt bike.
I also used to like to play electric guitar very ---very---loud.
But I am a highly sensitive person, in fact so sensitive that I can barely function.
My life is a mess, relationships, career and so on and so forth, everything is a mess because I am too sensitive.
I can not stand anything; scents, noise, et cetera...
Everything makes me sick, causes me headaches or nausea or some other ailment...
I quit many jobs because I had to perform while being watched by peers...
I can not stand anyone so I live like a recluse but then I get lonely...
Now I'm 51 years old and I am a very lonely and very sad man.
I consider myself defective.
