Maybe its the time of year, because I've been experiencing much the same thing. I've never been much for being touched, and of course my kids have always been the exception, until recently and they just seem to want to crawl all over me. All the while I'm biting my tongue because I just feel like screaming.
I've always avoided bright light, stay out of the sun most of the time.
Noise is the biggest problem. I have been EXTREMELY noise sensitive lately. With a houseful of kids, this is not a good thing, lol.
I assume it's part of the manic side. I would mention it to my pdoc if I were you, I'm certainly going to at my next appointment. I feel better seeing your post this morning. Not that you're suffering with this, but I was beginning to feel like I was the only one that ever felt like hiding away from the rest of the world in a quiet, dark room.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.
