Sensory overload

Being around other people is
often a chore for me. On the
Meyers-Briggs scale, I am an
extreme introvert: I recharge my
batteries with alone time.
Even being around those I love
overwhelms me.
After a weekend with the Kid
and my love, I can't wait for them to
head back to school or work
so I can have a few quiet hours to
write, read, and doze. My own job
cuts into this precious time quite a bit,
making me a crabby chick at times when
the old mental cells don't get topped off.
Never mind being around my family of
origin, who sometimes suck me dry in mere minutes;
I have learned to limit my time with them
especially when all six of us girls are
together. Who knew love could be
