  1. This brought me to tears this morning. And I avoid tears! But Long. LOOOONG. I have health issues on top of being highly sensitive to smell, sound, people, crowds, chemicals. know, right? For 14 long years I’ve been unable to dress normally, go places and do things normal people do. This year I have 2 new chronic health problems I’m being treated for that further limit me. I HATE being so high maintenance. I do carry my own jam jar and I do have a thick skin but I also had a mom (I just lost to COVID) who thought I came from another planet and a sweet adoring husband of 46 yrs who cannot seem to remember I’m unwell or that I have hyper sensory stuff. I “feel” every veiled insult, notice every annoyed facial expression and work overtime trying not to get in the way of my normal people. I’m so tired and worn out. Thank you Cheri Gregory for putting words to my burdens. Thank you for seeing LONG in Jesus’ words and being sensitive to the words He used and gleaning such supportive understanding. Thank you for investing your time to put this out there.

  2. Thank you, Cheri. I, somehow, don’t feel quite so alone… <3

  3. As I sit here reading your post, I am surprised by the tears rolling down my face. See, I just jumped over here from your post about being a HSP and I feel a kinship with you – that most of the world doesn’t “get me”.
    It blessed me to be reminded that God does.
    Thank you

  4. Thank you for this, it’s been a very thought provoking read. I’m now thinking of all the times Jesus ‘got’ people, and how he ‘gets’ me 🙂

  5. SO many LONG years of being stuck in high maintenance! Thank you, Cheri, for getting me–and focusing my attention on the God who truly gets me!

    Wow. I always love your unique perspective and fresh insights.

  7. I, too, am tired of being high maintenance. But knowing that God does not view me that way is so comforting.

    Cheri, I love your insights. I have read and heard this story from Luke so many times and never paid attention to that one little word but now I see how powerful that “little” word truly is. Thanks for being so transparent and open.
