11. Allergies, asthma, etc., are awful.

When I was younger the doctors weren't as careful with steroids as they are now. I don't react well to these. Any long term use of Prednisone, for example, will reliably trigger psychosis in me. I do take inhaled steroids for asthma. The dose of these is so small they don't have the systemic effects oral steroids do.

I hate parties and other noisy places.

Those club scenes they show on movies and television, with loud music, dancing, and flashing lights, look like hell to me. I got dragged into such places a few times when I was young but always ended up leaving quickly, even if that left me without a ride home. That's another reason I always wear shoes I can run in.
