Same and now avoid them like the plague.This is how l respond to social interaction. It's a chore, it's masking, l receive no gratification from it.
I don't need to look at their faces or eyes. Big deal.
I dislike anything messing with my brain as well. I partied hearty when I was a teenager but by age 20 grew to dislike it and weened off over the next several years. I have long pain experience unfortunately but also high pain tolerance or so the doctors and dentists tell me. One wondered outloud if I wasn't in fact dead.I hate the way certain medications can make my brain feel, as if there is a barrier between my consciousness and my body.
(I'd rather deal with pain than be out of absolute control of my senses. I've experienced both bone and cardiac infarction pain, so my tolerance levels, aided and abated by limited interoception, are atypically high. I get crabby, but I'm not weirding out about a buffer sensation.)
And it isn't hard to be reasonable to people who reasonable themselves.
