... About being hyposensitive, rather than hypersensitive? Why do people not seem to know about hyposensitivity?

Which kind of "hyposensitive" do you mean?

That you are literally impaired in your body feeling things? Like you dont feel physical pain as readily as most?

Or do you mean figuratively: that you're less "sensitive" to the comments of other than most?

Was referring to stimuli, like lights, noise, etc.

Oh. Okay.

Your "sensory issues" are the opposite of that of many autistics. You get UNDER whelmed by bright lights and noise. In a word...you're oblivious.

Is this obliviousness a net help, or a net handicap in your life?
