Dear Practitioner, I’m sharing this with you to understand me better, and I hope to discuss it further so that you may be more informed and prepared for the best care. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and get to know me and my needs. This letter can become part of my file.
I have the innate trait of high sensitivity, scientifically known as sensory processing sensitivity (SPS) or more commonly known as the highly sensitive person (HSP). About the Trait. This scientifically proven trait, found in about 20% of the population, is equal in gender, and about 70% are introverts and 30% extroverts. It is NOT a diagnosable disorder, but a trait that informs my physical and mental health. Because this is a sensory processing sensitivity, people with this trait can experience overstimulation of the senses. This nervous system overstimulation can impact us in many ways, including our health. This trait evolved as a survival strategy of the population, so a group of people would take in and process more subtle details. There are distinct brain differences as well that are important to note.
● More activation in the amygdala may trigger the fight/flight/freeze response too often, releasing adrenaline and stress hormones, sometimes being the culprit of emotional reactivity, digestive issues, headaches/migraines, and other chronic conditions. ● More activation in the insula means more conscious awareness (often why HSPs often benefit the most in psychotherapy and can often feel symptoms before they show up on tests). ● More activation in the brain mirror neuron system means HSPs often fire some of the same neurons as the person they observe, leading to increased empathy and sometimes increased overload.
Sensitivity to Medications. HSPs are often more sensitive to medications and can be more impacted by side effects and, therefore, need to consider starting at lower dosages. It may also be necessary to increase or decrease medications more slowly; therefore, please discuss medications thoroughly. If at all possible, it is often better to try more natural, holistic alternatives first.
Misdiagnosis. Without awareness of this trait, there are times those with this trait may experience misdiagnosis of Sensory Processing Disorder, Bipolar, Borderline, ADHD, Anxiety, or Depression. Education of this trait is crucial. Childhood conditions impact sensitive people more. Research shows us that HSPs suffer more in adverse, unsupported childhoods and thrive more in positive, supportive childhood conditions. Sensitive children who grow up in supportive environments thrive even more than those without the trait, which means supporting parents with sensitive children is imperative.
Common Challenges of HSPs who did not have a supportive childhood include ● Higher Stress Levels ● Anxiety ● Depression ● Low self-esteem (often the result of feeling different and misunderstood). ● Chronic Health Conditions, such as headaches, digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, adrenal issues, etc. ● Sleep issues ● Depletion, Fatigue
Recommended Support You can support HSPs in your office by having scent-free spaces, dimmer lighting, soft materials on seating, private and quieter areas (no ticking clocks or buzzing sounds).
Medically. HSPs often appreciate a gentle and slower approach to procedures and office visits. Having you explain what you are doing before you do it, giving a little extra time to process what you are saying and discussing needs, and gently checking in throughout procedures are all helpful.
Mental Health Support. HSPs often experience high stress levels trying to live in a world not set up for the sensitive. They tend to be overgivers and often need support to set healthy boundaries and learn to honor and advocate for their own needs. They can have perfectionist tendencies that can lead to high expectations of themselves. It’s essential to help them normalize and validate their experience, and they will benefit significantly from developing more self-compassion.
Recognize that you experience events differently than your partner, who may not feel as intensely as you do. Prepare your partner ahead of time that you may need to call a ‘timeout’ during a disagreement if you feel overwhelmed. Get ample rest, eat healthily, and take downtime to decompress. Recognize that being highly sensitive is a double-edged sword. Feeling emotions of pain and joy more acutely can be a good thing.
So, HSP could explain why I respond badly to many prescription medications? I do not tolerate narcotics, or they don't work. I get a histamine rash to numerous narcotics and antibiotics. Thankfully I don't have chronic conditions that require medications.
I'd be curious to know if any HSP's here have had this kind of a dialog with their doctor? I'm pretty hesitant for fear of being seen as crazy. I don't think I could ever deliver a letter like this, probably because of the way that I was treated growing up with this.
I would like to be more comfortable in this world but there is a big block in me about asking for it. I guess right now it's about taking better care of myself.

For Exercise 1, Three Thumps: 1. Use several fingers or knuckles to tap the spots shown in the pictures. Tap vigorously on each set of spots. Focus on breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth during all the tapping. 2. To locate K-27 points place your fingers on your collarbone and move them inward towards the U-shaped notch at the top of your breastbone. Move your fingers to the bottom of the U and then move down and out about an inch to find the spots. Tap or massage for ten to fifteen seconds. 3. Place the fingers of either or both hands in the center of your sternum at the thymus gland. Tap there for fifteen to twenty seconds with your fingers or your knuckles.
4. Tap the neurolymphatic spleen points, beneath the breasts and down one rib, for fifteen seconds. Alternately, tap the spleen acupuncture points, located on the side of the body about four inches down from the arm pits, for fifteen seconds. If either set is more tender use these points in the future.
