The Highly Sensitive Person Podcast

08: Why am I so Jumpy?



I am jumpy. I've been scared by my own shadow (no joke). Just last night, I was using my iPhone as a flashlight in the dark, when it illuminated a mirror, and my reflection scared me. Also not joking. In Episode 8 of the Highly Sensitive Person Podcast, I talk about how some sounds affect me greatly--specifically, loud, sudden, and incessant noises. From buses to babies to birds (that alliteration was so lucky), I explain what sets me off and why I think it affects HSPs more than others.
