human-sized hamster ball post from 7/15, here's a list from BuzzFeed:
27 Problems Only Introverts Will Understand.
Um, yep, yep, and double-yep.
Being introverted has definitely caused me problems in my life. It's easy to tell someone, "Oh, get over it," but it's not as simple as that.
Those who are introverts, I know you get it.
Those who aren't, it's not something easy to explain. The stimuli, especially to someone like me with fibromyalgia, can be physically and mentally overwhelming. What energizes an extrovert can send me to bed for a couple of days (or longer) afterward if it triggers a flare.
I'm lucky that Hubby and Sir "get it" and accommodate me. I don't think Sir totally understands it, because He's an extrovert to the Nth, but He's learned to recognize the signs of when I'm getting overwhelmed and need a break if we're out.
How do you cope with being an introvert?
