While I am still, comparatively speaking, a "sensitive soul", I am not as sensitive in the past couple of months that I have been feeling so well.  Getting rid of the gluten is not only healing my gut, it's thickening my skin!

I am so interested to see if I am one.  I'm wating patiently on my test restults.

Oh, goody.  We resurrected this thread!  I just read back over the last two pages and was nodding and chuckling to myself.  *happy sigh* I finally fit in somewhere.  People understand!  This is amazing!  I love you guys.  I really do.  As was mentioned on the previous page, about "difficult children" maybe being nonnies, I believe this may be true.  Looking at my AB nonnie daughter and seeing me as a child in her (not in any way tempermentally)....Like the other morning we were going through last year's summer clothes trying things on and I guess it was just the wrong day to do it.  Everything was "too big" or "too small" or "too tight" or "the tag scratches" or "it's wrinkly" or "the red is too bright."  You name it, it was a problem.  So I put all the clothes back in the box to try on a happier day, and I got her dressed in her regular clothes again.  But were her socks right?  Oh, no, the seam just wouldn't sit right on her toes.  We tried three different pairs of socks out of her drawer.  I finally told her just to go barefoot, but "the floor's too cold."  All this was done with many tears on her part, understand.  The only think keeping me from getting really upset at her was the fact that I remember good and well how sensitive I was as a child and how I couldn't concentrate at school because my tag would itch or my hair would tickle my ears and forehead or my sock elastic was too tight or too loose, or, even worse, uneven, and one sock would stay up and the other would scrunch down.  So my recollection of what it was like kept me from getting mad at her.  We tried on a happier day when she wasn't touchy and all was well.

I agree, Ribbit.  It's just a relief to understand ourselves and others, and know that sometimes people are not just being difficult.  It's how we are wired!

Do any other nonnies besides myself have a difficult time sleeping if there is another person in the same bed?

It took me several months after we were married to be able to relax and have a good night's sleep (but by then I was pregnant, so I couldn't sleep anyway), because I hadn't ever shared a bed with anybody other than my sister!  I think I'm too "aware" physically.  It's like Please don't touch or bump me or breathe on me......Although I have no trouble snuggling up with my babies and sleeping with them all night.

I think it's kind of normal.  When we were first married, we held each other all night.  Now it's all about getting sleep.  She came too close the last couple nights and I gave her a shove.  She said it's most comfortable to sleep inbetween the two pillow.  ????????

Being in bed to cuddle is great!  But when I'm ready to sleep, that's a different matter.  I prefer to not have the distraction of another body.  Movements, noises, breathing . . all these things greatly disturb my sleep.

I don't know if it's a nonnie thing, or maybe because I mothered two children and learned to sleep lightly.  Whatever the cause, I only get refreshing sleep if I am completely undisturbed.

Often snoring (somebody else's) will ruin my sleep. For me the worst sleep-deprivation things are car alarms and barking dogs. And the tv down the hall when I'm trying to sleep if I have to get up early.

Don't get me started on dogs.  Every house we've lived in since we've been married we've ended up having loud dogs right next door.  I have murdered many a dog in my heart.  They know when we're taking naps and they come out and yap or howl, and where are the owners?  At work all day, or at parties till late at night and the dogs just bark and bark and bark.  Grrrrrrrrr at them.  Throw them some chocolate or something.

My nonnie-ness shows up big in the sleep area too.  In my own room, in my own bed, with the thick, black curtains pulled, I sleep fine.  If there is a disturbing noise, I can turn on a fan to cover it, and that usually works.

Sleeping away from home is very frustrating.  At mom's house, they have three indoor cats (to which I have a mild allergy), and a night light I can see in the living room (where I'm usually "sleeping"), PLUS one of those awful clocks that chime.  I have to take it down from the wall and turn off the chime before I can even think about sleep.  Dad's house isn't much better: paper-thin curtains and industrial-strength outdoor lights shining right into the guest bedroom window.

*lol*  That reminds me of one of our apartments in Miami where we had the same problem.  Only the resident mocking bird thought it was day time all night long and he sat on this tiny pole that stuck out from the wall just above our bedroom window, and he'd sing for 8 hours straight.

My Mom and StepDad have a clock like that in there living room and I slept overnight there once this year due to a snowstorm.  I think it woke me every half our.  The big hoopla on the hour and the one chime at the half.  They're and the clock was lucky I wasn't sleeping with a gun.

I still have no clue if I'm a nonnie though.

I bet my husband is too.  He gets unreasonably tense and angry if the children are too loud.  I gently remind him that if he's a nonnie, all our kids are too, and that's why we're all hyper-sensitive to everything.  It helps us be a little more patient with each other when we understand they're feeling what we're feeling.

Yeah, too much commotion for me gets me the same way.    I'm not really into big crowds either.  I usually feel kind of, chlostrophobic.  However it's spelled.  And lately, I totally feel like a hypochondriac, although that's more of a new thing.  I never did like being sick, but things usually passed quickly when I was younger.  No chronic stuff.

Anyways, my test has arrived but waiting on the results!!!!!!!

I am still trying to work out if Im a non-secretor or not but I was just thinking after reading some of the threads that I might be since;

When I first saw the word nonnie and you guys using it all over the place, for some reason the word "nonnie" really annoyed me + it still does.
I think cos I didn't know what it meant but Im investigating more for myself now I will get used to the word more and hopefully become friends with it.

I often felt isolated and different as a child.

I never had problems with eating food & loved it and always wanted more, until one day my dad told me to stop pigging out on chicken one night.

we always had wine at the table but I gave it up when I was 12 as I read that it was fattening.

I was talking about secreter status with my husband the other night and how we probably were all non-secreters.  My 5-year-old said, "I hope I'm a yes-secreter."  "Why is that?" I asked.  "Well, because I want to be able to....secrete....stuff."

I like certain 'white noise' & can't stand other noises like motors running....
I sleep better with talk on the radio than music. I like to hear others' conversations like on talk shows or even the news station.
When I was younger, I also was more irritated by tags, seams, etc. (I still cut the tags off clothing as I assume I am allergic to the material.)As my diet improved over the years, I am not as hyper in that sense & not as ticklish.

I like to sleep with another person(spouse!)but if he isn't there, I like that radio going(even when he is there-I'm glad he likes it also, but doubt he is as addicted as I am.).
I assume I'm a nonnie, & even tho nonnies have more problems, I would be disappointed to find I'm a secretor! The nonnie diet worked better for me. If I can get more diamonds, I'm sure the GTD would be better, too.

to give up alc. intake with 12 years... weew.....this is a very early time to do so!!!  
normally it's just the inverse time...you might get into contact with wine up from 15-16 even later and wine in itself isn't harming but the contrary but it depends of course about the mass
I grew up in South of France...here people drink red wine every day and no little amounts ....but there people's health is normally at their very best and very little of heartattacs, nor whatsoever....
I think here lays the evidence of methylation and the body's capability for quicker detox .....

Oh, I can sympathize. There are certain words & letters of the alphabet I don't like. But after time, we get used to them.
There's a college here, the U of Illinois, but the newer Chicago location. For years, they called it Chicago Circle.
Somehow, I didn't like that name. So, when I finally got used to it (20? years?), they started calling it UIC(Univ. Ill. at Chicago).
We all grumbled about the long political campaign, but at least the names Huckabee & Obama don't seem strange. I am sure that these people were judged by their names early on, but now they are household words. I hated my maiden name, but others who knew it don't think much about it. I'm sure they thought it was funny or ugly when they first heard it, but when one gets used to it, nobody cares.
So, in conclusion, I hope we all get used to the word "nonnie" like we probably did "newbie" & who knows what else. How about NS instead of nonnie?
Anyway, have a good day!!
