The Highly Sensitive Person Podcast

57. Interview with teen HSP, Daisy Gumin



Meet Daisy Gumin. She's an 18-year-old Highly Sensitive Person and introvert. She and her mother went through a harrowing year and a half of trying to figure out what was "wrong" with Daisy. She had been displaying destructive, angry, depressive, and self-harming behavior. She went through lots of therapy, medications, hospitalizations, attended a therapeutic boarding school, and even a wilderness therapy program (she was taken there in the middle of the night without knowing where she was going!) Throughout this time, she was diagnosed with ADHD, OCD, bipolar disorder, and more. After all that, she and her mother discovered Dr. Elaine Aron's book, The Highly Sensitive Person, and suddenly everything made sense. After so many misdiagnoses, they had found the key to understanding Daisy. She was highly sensitive. After that, the healing began.  Want to support the show?
