May I be so bold as to suggest you pick up a copy of this book by Elaine Aron, PhD on how to handle your sensitivities in this world! Or check the library for one of her books.
“it’s a great gift. You’re creative, compassionate, and you deeply appreciate subtlety and beauty in the world. On the other hand, you may be more easily disturbed by noise, bright lights, strong scents, crowds, and time pressure than the less sensitive among us.”
