Balletomane and NCA, welcome to the our exclusive little club - knowledge is powerr!  I concur with all the previous observations about sensitivities - I immediately cut the labels out of my clothes when I get them home, sometimes even these little stubs irritate me  .  I think I've posted other funny 'nonnie' observations of mine on another thread:

Again welcome to the gang!!

Thanks, Andy! That's an interesting thread. I must say that my sensitivity has increased with age. Perhaps I was raised to be exposed to/tolerate all kinds of food, especially strong-tasting ones, and to terrible noise levels and traffic in a busy city, so gradually I became desensitized. However, after having started my meditation practice ten years ago, and having lived in a very peaceful/quiet country, my sensitivity level has heightened a great deal and I can't stand a lot of things as a result. I can even detect a smoker or a coffee drinker when he/she gets on the subway train and sit next to me.

The part about "I'm allergic to this and that" as a mantra in social gatherings is certain true after I started my BTD diet! I think my friends and family are starting to get tired of me

You know, I never thought about the shoe dragging thing or the noises until NCA mentioned it. I'm so oversensitive to noises too. People used to crinkle a potato
chip bag in the middle of class and I would flip out. Any "crunching" noise when
someone bites their fingernails almost sends me into violent mode. I also always
had a ponytail because I couldn't stand hair on my face - didn't know how people
did it.....now I have shorter hair but need a hair band Thanks for sharing.

Yeah planet Nonnie!!!
I used to always keep my hair really short so it didn't get in my face... Hate it when it's windy for that reason, now...
Flip out if food noises interrupt sound on movies, especially if I think someone could  avoid it...
Hate scratchy tickets on clothing, scratchy fabrics, high collars etc wrong feeling clothing in general...

I agree!  Planet nonnie is a different world.  nwiser, it's bad when you have a fan oscillating on you while sleeping and your hair is flying and touching your neck and it wakes you up!.....We'd be easy to get info out of, wouldn't take much to torture us.  Sorry that's my black sense of humour.  

Ditto Possum!  How about chalk on a chalkboard, oh school was difficult before the white board!

IMHO it's more comfortable to watch movies at home where we can control everything, not too cold, chair is just right, no crinkling packages or talking around you, not too loud.  Even if you have a tiny screen it's much better in some ways!  I find the big screen and sound overwhelming anyway!

Although it was worth it to see Avatar in 3d recently that blew my mind!

Not at all. I was afraid I was!
And I was pretty sure my mom wasn't.

Oh mine! I hated it when I was in school. One teacher had long fingernails and would scratch the chalkboard with them, yeaw!

And if someone make those squeaky noises on the plate with the knife trying to cut a piece of food real hard, it would send my nerves up the ceiling!

Lately my long hair annoys when I'm going to bed cause it snags when I'm trying to get comfortable in the bed. It also bothers me when it gets snagged while I'm carrying my purse (the strap goes on the shoulder and snags the hair--grrr!). So I've taken to braiding it a lot, even to go to bed, even though I prefer it down so it can breathe.

Shorter hair styles are harder to pull back and the ends tend to poke me in the face or fall in my eyes, so I tend to let it grow out. Tried a real short cut a couple of times in my life--both times I looked like a boy.

I always pull my hair up on top of my head & tie it up loosely b4 bed - so it doesn't muss around during sleep Didn't think about the "being able to breath" bit...I prefer if I can breath
Being claustrophobic, I think I would have a nightmare if I woke up with hair covering my face & would freak out...

My Nana always wore a bun during the day but would appear at night with a long plait/braid all the way down her back...

Hmmm, I'm not sure of my secretor status, but I have always been sensitive like all of you guys have been saying. It seems I am actually becoming more sensitive as time goes by. I am easily annoyed by people who make loud smacking noices when they chew, as well tags on gloves or shirts. Balletomane, both my mom and I also have the issue of the silverware scraping against the plate. The clatter of a glass bottle thrown in a recycle bin with OTHER glass bottles has been getting on my nerves too.

Holy crud! I just got my secretor results! I'm a Nonnie!!!  I was starting to suspect when I stumbled into this part of the board and was reading all the little quirks & sensitivities....  WOW.  Now I have to go check my avoids & beneficials and see what I need to adjust....

Oh, I have wondered, if Nonnies are 20% of the population, why does it seem like there are so many of us here?  Does it have something to do with personality types (as in, we're the type to be interested in BTD and learning about ourselves and seeking out like-minded individuals)

Welcome to the club drbygrll.  Great name!  

I think there are lots of nonnies here because we're cool   Or maybe just because we are sensitive types who seek out answers to our health problems which sometimes the other 80% don't understand.  Lucky we got each other eh?! and the diet and Dr D.  

My goodness, since I found out for sure I was a nonnie how much better I feel eating the right foods!   Enjoy your new food lists!

more than 80% of Dr D s patients are nonnies......must have to do with being weird
and prone to inflammatory health issues!

Hiya drbygrll

Welcome to the cool club of nonnies!!

Enjoy all your new foods!

I agree with both Lola and Symbi - I reckon we're more curious about health and well-being because of our unique issues  .  Nonnie-hood rocks !

Hey nonnies, if I read it correctly, the percentage of nonnies (latest one, you can find on this site) is 27%! So be sure one out of four is a nonnie!

Right, so maybe not such an exclusive club anymore these days - although we've always welcomed all our secretor and unkown brethren!

Very interesting topic everyone!  Not surprised that most of Dr Ds clients are Nonnies, idiosyncratic is a word that comes to mind! and friendly and many more  

How did you come up with that percentage Kumar?  Just curious.  I'd like a way to search for members by blood type and secretor status (maybe by shield type would work?).  Just putting that out there to admins who may know if that's possible?

I never really thought about noises and being nonnie, so thank you for bringing it up. My child was verbal from the time she awoke until she dropped at night sixteen long hours later. Her constant vocalizing felt like pressure on my skin. When she would stop talking I often felt as if I could finally breathe, but hadn't been aware of not being able to breathe before that.

Shockeroo - Just found out I'm a Nonnie, too!     
Re-ran SWAMI and I gained lots of great foods!  
I thought for sure if I was a non-secretor that SWAMI would taketh away...
it did completely take away wheat, but that is A-OK my me.
I've always been more sensitive (tasting, smelling, hearing, nerves, nutrition).
Yays!
