Coping for the Highly Sensitive Parent - Page 5

post #81 of 88

I am as well. So I am subbing and going to take time later to really read through some stuff.

 

At times it's worse than others and I've learned to cope (not quite sure how) but my house is a loud house and my children are very loud. I believe that my children are overly sensitive as well.

This is me too. I read the Aaron book a while ago but have not yet worked through all the exercises. I think I need to. I find my HSP-ness has got harder and harder to deal with as my son's got older. I tried home educating him for a year and nearly cracked, so am now putting him in school from September. I find my tolerance and coping ability has decreased, I also suspect I have depression at the moment but not sure if it's 'just' that my HSP-ness has had to be overridden for so long. I'm a single mother and so I find it relentless. I would like to try and find more of the positives about being a HSP. Although my son goes to his dad regularly it's very rarely for more than a night, and I find I only truly recharge and recover and am able to really sink into myself, when i have a few consecutive days. I am going to see how him going to school works out for me... and will keep checking this page! Soooo good to hear others' stories and feel not alone and not weird or like a failure as a mother because i can't deal with what others find manageable.

Would other HSP's out there like to participate in an HSP support thread? I thought starting a resource and reflection thread could be really helpful. The 2013 comments indicate to me that there may be some active HSPs members in the forums
Interested? Let me know here or by PM.
