Why am I so sensitive? All I do is cry. Someone replies to me in a tone that doesn't sound nice and my brain hates it. What's wrong with me? Why can't I toughen up? Why do words affect me so badly?

I'm no expert but… exposure therapy? Spend a few hours in a Call of Duty lobby and that ought to make any other insult seem insignificant.

Sensitivity helps discern subtleties. I'd set up my world to avoid those bad experiences, and to preserve and enhance my sensitivity.

Lol. That is a good suggestion because I play Overwatch and have suffered through three games of League.

But I'm still sensitive and a giant crybaby. There's something wrong with me.

What does your doctor say about it? You don't have to tell us, but there's probably some wisdom there.

Not really sure how to understand this. If it's a good suggestion, why has following it so much failed?

To be honest, I envy you a bit. I haven't had a good cry in *checks watch* at least a few years. Even when I've really wanted to. The closest thing is I want to cry, and my eyes get really dry, and I start laughing as though I'm sneering at something.

Do you even enjoy those games? I realized after years that I hated them. Quitting and leaving them behind was one of the best things I've done.

No.1024

I have that problem to anon. What helped me was a bit of exposure therapy, but it has to be whatever makes you cry and not random insults, and straight up treating what I have like a mental disorder. Looking up CBT techniques or anxiety disorder treatments helped me a lot.
