Possum, I used to have fever induced hallucinations as a kid, too.  Mine were always voices, a chorus of voices fading in and out.  I really hated that.  It was so creepy and crazy.  The voices were annoying textures and patterns.

I can hear my pulse echo through my pillow if I don't sleep on my back.  That will keep my from sleeping because it seems so loud, so I have to sleep on my back.

Sometimes I think I'm a whacko.  Thank goodness I have people around me to keep me grounded, particularly DH who is very sane, normal and practical, although he says I keep him sane.  In which case we're both in trouble!

Yes, I am so super sensitive, but definitely better now on BTD, just around my monthly times I am still pretty bad!    My dad was always like this, on the edge all the time!  I find myself doing the same.  I also have to run a fan at night because of the constant whirring sound.  I can't stand the total quiet because I hear everything around me, even breathing.  It has gotten better though, but I still much prefer my fan.  (My hubby doesn't care for it too much!  He says, "Why do you want noise to sleep?"  He thinks I am nutsy!)

Slurping soup just grates on my last nerve as well, slurping anything, hot tea, whatever.  Just thinking of the dental drill noise makes me want to scream.  It's like I can feel the noises itself.  Yikes!  I think it is a nonnie thing because we are just so sensitive...period.  I am finding that magnesium, calcium and tyrosine does help though.  

P.S.  That catechol about knocks me out!  It makes me sleepy...


My wife and I play a "white noise" cd all night...

I am a veterinary surgical technician who can't stand having the gown to thight around the neck. So I always hold on to the front while someone ties it, everyone knows about my quirk but if they happen to space out and start tightening it too much ( I need it really loose otherwise I'll freak  )  I will demand to have it loosened. My boss even once commented that I must have been hanged in a previous life!

I've just read up to page 9 (note to self: resume reading at the top of page 10) and I have a few observations to make:

I think I read part of this thread when I first joined, but then stopped because I felt like I was "intruding" on "proper nonnie space" when I couldn't be sure of my secretor status.  I really resonate with many (though not all) of the things listed- but then so did JJR (back when he was ABNoWay) and he turned out to be a secretor!

I can't help but wonder how many of these "common nonnie traits" are really specific to nonnies, or it's just that the nonnies are posting while the secretors (or non-nonnies, tee hee) are avoiding the thread. I similarly wonder how many nonnies  don't  identify with this hyper-sensitivity.

Ribbit- you mentioned somewhere early in this thread about your husband being a nonnie too. Has that been verified? Also, is he the AB or one of the Bs in your family?

I can definitely relate to that "crawling out of my skin" feeling at times. I often feel like "If I could just take off this irritating layer (bra, tight waistband, sweaty panties, etc) I'd feel better- but I often get that feeling even when nothing I'm wearing is cutting in! I'll go to my room and undress and the  feeling won't go away; it's like an itch just under my skin. I'm actually surprised when the discomfort was actually caused by clothing and changing my clothes actually helps!

I'm very easily distracted- if there's music (with audible lyrics) playing, or the TV's on, I can't focus on anything else. There have been times when I've had to tell DD1 "You can either watch TV or have my attention, but you can't do both." That's gotten better because we've established better rules for TV watching in the household, and it's less likely to be on when we want to cook dinner together.

Funny how so many of you can't stand to be outside without sunglasses. I can't stand sunglasses, period! I always wear a hat wtih a brim to block the sun from my eyes, but I don't want anything to dim my actual view or change the colors. I actually did just purchase clip-on sunglasses, that fit onto my prescription glasses, but that's the first pair of sunglasses I've owned in years. I've recently, just this summer, started to notice that the sun is too bright at times, such as at the beach or driving at dusk.

I wish I knew my secretor status - I feel like this thread was written for me, but, then again, everyone has quirks.  I am super-sensitive to everything though and always have been; I guess sensitivity is different that just random quirks.  I'm having general blood work done soon; maybe I could have the Lewis test done...

Quoted from Ribbit
Here's my take on Explorers.  It seems to me that I play Explorer in real life even though I measure a Warrior.  I wonder if secreting Explorers are the closest GenoType to being nonnies. That probably doesn't make much sense scientifically, but I'm not sure how else to explain it.  It just seems to me, reading how you Explorers react to things, if you're not a Nonnie, you may as well be one.  Does that make any sense to anybody but me?


(note to self: resume reading on page 13)

Ribbit- that makes perfect sense to me. I wonder if most of the "secretors who thought for SURE they were nonnies!" are Explorers.

Soon I want to start a poll about people who resonate with "nonnie traits" and how many of them are nonnies (and, in the same poll, people who thought for sure they were secretors  but aren't.)

you might be a nonnie if the smell someone eating corn chips drives you out of your mind and makes you gag.

the sheets have to be flat.. I make my bed three times a night right after a hot flash.. in the morning its just for show.. -who to-- me - for the new bedspread.. ahaha

Quoted Text
I do have a ionizing air freshener, since I don't like cooking smells.. it runs 27/7Sooo, it runs overtime I see??!!  


You are funny.. it took me a minute before I read it correctly? +++ so
IF you are a nonnie: then the air freshener MUST run overtime!   hahah

NOW REALLY have to read all near 400 posts here.. and see what else I identify with.. a good laugh on a rainy day..

Clutter yes, I can't live with it, habits of putting things in one or the other place start from the moment I do it.. habits are so habit forming, It must be a nonnie thing?   

My closets are neat but the desk top a scramble..  the closet thing is on issue too all things have to hang nicely- I refuse to hang it up twice because it falls down - I have more hangers then the stores I bought them from.

What about it nonnies?  DO you like curtains? or does it matter - so long as you can do without them??????   oh yeah.. shoes never feel good when new..  

I doubt it to be a nonnie thing, but my floors have to be shiny so thy at least look clean..
House guest can make me bonkers..  why can they not see the need to be like me? I take my shoes off when coming home, why don't they? or dry a bathroom sink after use? or make the bed when getting up? or .. no: I am not anal ? ! ?

But if I think long enough about this thread- I will be..

You might be a nonnie if....

Your son comes home from camp and you need to wash EVERYTHING he brought home. Of course the dirty clothes need to be washed, but the "clean" ones stink of scented laundry detergent, and the balled, unworn socks (and the raincoat) picked up the scent by association. You regret that the suitcase isn't machine washable.

And then, when you go to switch the laundry, the towels STILL reek of scented detergent so you wash them AGAIN- even knowing that many others wouldn't have bothered washing them a first time.

Why would I need to add essential oils to the laundry? I have no problem with the unscented detergent I use when I wash clothes. The problem came when my son returned home from camp with clothes that were washed at camp with scented detergent, and probably too much of it. Adding essential oils to try and "cover up" the smell wouldn't have helped- natural fragrances would have only made the synthetic fragrances all the more irritating. I can only enjoy natural scents when my system isn't being overloaded with chemicals.

I solved the problem by washing the affected clothes with vinegar, and no added detergent.

Oh Yes laundry detergent.. what a wash out..I use clear no smell only..

I am on my diet again to drop the next 20 pounds.. so I entered 40 pounds lost in Swami.. well it did not change - as far as I can tell yet.. Typical NONNIE take over- no matter what : I am nonnie first and always..

So I am dropping the weight KNOWING that my diet will remain steady..

A good thing, at least I am not going from one to another Geno type.

Hurray for Nonnies!  Steady reliable and forever!

You might be a nonnie if...

...The music played by your coworkers distracts you from being able to do your job effectively, and then you have anxiety over what they think of you when you express your concern.

Seriously, hard rock in a calibration laboratory?  Are you serious?  I gotta concentrate in here, people!

Oh yes...music is very influential on our bodies, moods, ability to think, etc.  I could not concentrate with loud rock music going on in the background.  Not that I don't enjoy it in other contexts.  I have always been very affected by whatever music is going on.  I am aurally oriented.  TJ, Bach would be good music for you to play for the type of work you do.

I'd rather have no music on.  I enjoy music, but even calm music can be distracting when I have to concentrate, and the guys I work with wouldn't tolerate classical music.  Somehow I think I'm missing the filter between my ear and my brain (whereas many people lack the one that should be between the brain and the mouth!)

I did much better today.  What can't a good night of sleep help?
