We have a gas leak in our living room, not 10 feet from where I'm sitting.  It comes through the a.c. vent.  Not all the time, but an occasional wiff, which is frustrating when I'm trying to prove to anybody else that it exists.  My DH can't smell it.  It took me two years of begging him to call the gas company  before he finally agreed to.  Before he could even do it, though, I saw the meter reader and ran outside and snatched him.  "We have a leak!" I nearly shouted.  "I can smell it coming through our bedroom window!"  Sure enough, it was a sizable one, outside.  Thankfully we weren't being charged for it--it was on the other side of the pipe from the meter.  However, I still smell the one in the living room.  It's right above the water heater downstairs.  So DH called somebody to come out and test, but he couldn't' find a leak.  I still smell it once a week or so, but after repeated tests, there's no sign of a leak.  I wonder if I smell it when the heater for the tank kicks on downstairs.  At any rate.....all that to say I smell stuff that other people can't.  Sometimes it's torture being a nonnie.  People think I'm making stuff up.  At least my DH can smell the mildew downstairs.  It's one reason we've told the landlord we're not buying the house!  (The landlord can't smell it of course!)

I have to practically run past the soaps aisle at the store.


Yeah, sometimes I have to hold my breath there!  Like Eric said, I'm not as sensitive now.  Of course, my sense of smell isn't the trouble, mine is a bit below normal for most stuff.

Certain noises really bother me, but I also like to have background noise. I like the radio on when I sleep & talk programs put me to sleep better than music. Maybe I like 'company' so I can relax & sleep. (Good thing my DH also likes the newsradio program at night, & he also doesn't mind if I listen to most night talk shows.)
I hate leaf blowers. I think they are about themost useless items ever invented. Why make all that noise when you can rake the leaves. It's like having a jackhammer or chain saw to cut a piece of pie! Motors idling are also a no-no for me & that is quite common oten times in a big city.
Yeah, I'm very auditory/verbal & the reaction to noise, both positive & negative is part of that for me.

When I was a wee bairn, my parents couldn't just walk up to my crib and talk to me, or I'd be taken by surprised and freak out.  They actually figured out that they had to make some kind of noise before approaching me, so I wouldn't be startled.

I pity any couple trying to raise a nonnie child... It's such stress and high maintenance.

Oh yes I can relate to this thread so well!  I believe our nonnieness is integrated into our whole being even visually.  As a child I would find all these foreign things in my food and line them up on the edges of my plate....hard bits, discoloured bits, sinewy bits, large pepper bits, etc. etc. much to my mother's exasperation.  Continually scratching my arms from the woolen jumpers that she had knitted!  She labeled me neurotic  

Yes, it was hard being a nonnie child but can be quite handy being a nonnie adult.  I'm the "food going off finder" with my sense of smell or the dirty sox in the boys bedroom finder etc.    

You can tell I'm a nonnie by the eye shades and ear plugs on my bedside table !

What's worse is a nonnie mommy with nonnie children!  I'm sitting here cringing, with my hands clapped over my ears because I can't handle the noise!  Not a good mix.  But here I find myself, having to block it out and continue on my merry way.  They're super-sensitive but in different ways.  My A son can't deal with the baby crying.  He'll run out of the room hollering, "No, Julia!  Don't cry!  It hurts my ears!"  My AB daughter weeps and wails and gnashes her teeth because of the tags in the back of her shirts.  And the seams on her socks.  And turtlenecks!  She won't wear turtlenecks!

thweeties why are you all blaming our nonnieness ...I'm nearly sure now that both of my *real* parents were nonnies...but I grow up in a houshold of .....both... and since I'm on BTD I conquered my
*bien-etre*  

all my dear friends..nonnies or sechis... just feel good with what you
were born and feel blessed with all your gifts and capabilities...

you all comit always the same error...you are identifying to your specifique situations...hey stop that and get some rest in your middle...I repeat...no-body is and no-body has....stay aware of your
breath and work on your negative feelings uprising in such situation in just becoming completely empty.....here lays the key  
hugs to my fellows



p.s...
I hear toooo much of I.....I......I......
this I am...I have I call it the I-concept coz the I never can stand alone......

Okay.  I like that, Isa.  I'll try to get more rest in my middle.

Grrr, tags and seams, who in their right mind EVER thought it was a good idea to put a thick, scratchy SEAM on the inside of the garment right next to your skin, when it could easily be on the outside???  at least, for underwear...  Those seams in the ends of the (tube) sock were the absolute worst for me.  When I was a kid, I had to have them lined up perfectly across my toes.  My brothers didn't care, and thought I was weird.  Now that I'm all grown up, I buy fitted socks.  They still have a seam, but its place is more tolerable on my tender tootsie.

*[Whisper]* Don't tell anybody, but my DH wears his underwear inside out for that very reason.

Isa, please don't think that we're whinging and whining!     We are actually laughing at ourselves     

It is sometimes hard to see in which temperament something is being said.  

Having said all that I fully agree that facing our negativities and fears changes our core so much for the better!
