Wow! I never knew I had a disorder! I am investigating SPD for my son, and found this area ringing true for me. I'm 51, am highly sensitive, and have struggled my whole life with people understanding me. I've come to see it as a gift from God, but it does often feel like a curse when I am moved to tears, and others are uncomfortable. Tears come despite my wish they would not. At least I know there must be more people like me out there.
