Sensory Defensiveness in HSP’s (Re-blogged)
The nervous system of highly sensitive people is more sensitive than the nervous system of non-HSP’s. As a result, HSP’s can have many sensory challenges that others do not. They include, light sensitivity, sensitivity to noise, sensitivity to touch and fabrics, as well as sensitivity to pain.
Because of these sensitivities and their nervous systems, Highly sensitive people recover from stressful situations more slowly than others which means that they need to protect themselves as much as possible from stressful and abusive situations.
