2005-06-27 [Ocean Dreaming]: Feel free to whine as much and as long as you like. ^-^ *hugs* I know how comments like that feel and I know how hard it is (especially for HSPs!) to ignore comments like that. Probably they're just jealous of the fact that you write wonderful poetry and they don't. People who can't handle that lash out at those who can. It's childish, hurtful and cowardly, but it says more about their own inability to come to terms with themselves than what the factual text is saying. I know, me saying this isn't much and it certainly doesn't undo the comment, but I hope it helps in some way. ^-^
2005-06-27 [Ocean Dreaming]: You're a wonderful poet, [Linderel] and it's a pleasure to read your work. If they're too immature to deal with who they are - that's their problem. One of the things we need to learn is not making things our problem, because we tend to do that. *hugs again* I'm sorry if I sound preachy, I don't mean to. It might not even be as effective for you as it is for me. ^-^;; What I've taught myself is not so much to let it slide but to let it bounce back. I don't deserve being treated like that just because someone else can't accept who they are (or who I am). Neither do you.
2005-06-27 [Ocean Dreaming]: You don't deserve to feel bad because someone else is taking their frustration out on you in the most cowardly fashion imaginable. You're a good poet and lovely person. You deserve to feel good about that and to take pride in that. ^-^ Never let anyone or anything tell you differently.
2005-06-27 [Linderel]: ...yeah. Thanks. It still stings a bit, but your and other people's kind words have soothed the pain. I never did get good at fending off the bull that's been thrown at me. Sigh. But, yeah. Thanks again. It means a lot to me, to know that there are people who think I'm actually worth something, as a person and a writer.
2005-06-28 [Ocean Dreaming]: *smiles* You're definitely worth heaps and heaps of positive events.
2005-11-06 [pixish]: Why is the test measured in fractions? :$ I suck at them >_< confuzzle :P
2005-11-25 [Sunrose]: The childhoodsecti
2005-11-30 [spincrus]: Wow, 16 of the ones in that online test apply to me.
2005-11-30 [Sunrose]: Then you might want to do some more reading and see if you recognise more ;)
2006-01-08 [The Kind Lady Renee]: Hello. My name is Kit...Is there a way that you can control this disease?
2006-01-08 [Sunrose]: It's no a disease :)
2006-01-08 [The Kind Lady Renee]: Okay...what I ment was is there a way that I can control it...or at least point me to something I can read about it, perhaps? I sound angry don't I? I'm sorry I don't mean to.
2006-01-08 [Sunrose]: Well, this page was written for a reason, go take a look at what it says ;)
2006-01-08 [The Kind Lady Renee]: sorry..
2006-01-28 [zoloftzantac]: I knew this was me right away, before I took the test. I can't go within an aisle of the scented cleaners in a supermarket or else I'll get an instant bad headache. Can't go near the perfume area of Macy's for the same reason. If there is a car alarm going off a block away, I can not focus on what I was doing until it stops, and bright lights ... lets just say the sun and I don't get along, but then that's why it is 5 pm here and I'm just waking up. The other stuff was interesting, having people's moods affect me and being moved by music sounds like me also. *reads more about it*
2006-01-28 [Sunrose]: I don't get a headache of smells immediately, but I can't go to a perfume store because afterwards I know I will be attacked by a headache that will cause for me to have to stay in bed all day >_< I also notice the smell of sigarette smoke within seconds, even if it is only on someone's clothes. And more of the things you also said..
2006-01-29 [zoloftzantac]: For strong smells I get a headache right away, that just gets worse and worse until I get away from the smell. My headache seems to go away pretty fast tho once I get away. About smoke, I often notice smoke that other people can't seem to smell. So, it is almost 7 am here so I need to go to sleep before the sun comes ...
2006-01-29 [Sunrose]: Hmm I mostly need to sleep and then I'll wake up without a headache :P but if in the next days I smeel perfume again the headache might slip right back in :o
2006-01-29 [zoloftzantac]: yeah, it is no fun. it has helped me to be attracted to hippie women who don't care much for perfume and scented deoderant, hair products, skin products, product products, etc., etc.
2006-01-29 [Sunrose]: For me it is more that I can't handle an overdose :P I'm fine when someone wears perfume, I just die in perfume stores :P And all of a sudden I have developed an allergy for one of my sweaters O.o
2006-01-30 [zoloftzantac]: for me it depends, a lot of scents are fine, even if they are strong, natural things are mostly okay, I think it is the scented chemicals that they come up with in labs that bother me most of the time. What is your sweater made of?
