I can remember being in my 20's and so excited to be going to a big New York city club for the first time. That was until we got inside, into this huge room full of people, spinning lights and loud music ...where I froze. An ice cold chill came over me and I started to shake involuntarily. I didn't understand what was happening and it was all could do to find a quiet corner to hide out in and get through the night.
Everyone else was laughing, dancing and having a great time and there I was overwhelmed, anxious and losing it!
It was more than the all the sensory stimulation too. I had always felt different and back then I thought there was something wrong with me that needed fixing. The parts of me that ran deeper and were "too" emotional and sensitive were more often than not misunderstood, dismissed or seen as a neurotic.
In an attempt to fit in, I became numb to myself and lost my vitality too.
