Do you have physical reactions to sights,smells,textures,clothing,bedding,lighting,crowds?
I spent years not realizing why I was having reactions to certain places and situations.
I remember not being able to concentrate in school(fluorescent lighting),feeling claustrophobic and panicky in some buildings due to the wall patterns and low or high ceilings.
If i have a seam on my clothes rubbing,I can't function. If my sheets bunch up or have a wrinkle,I can't sleep.
I have some that would make you swear i'm insane.
I'm on the low end of the spectrum. Just enough to make me "weird"
When people violate my space. If someone comes too close to me to talk I get annoyed. When people touch me for any reason if I am not expecting it. It makes me cringe. I think I am a obsessive compulsive. I have to have labels facing out, I cannot have dirty floors, it makes me crazy if people walk inside my house with shoes on. I just can't concentrate. All I can think of is cleaning the floor when they leave. I clean the floor & toilets after visitors leave & I clean the leather couch if they sit on it. Am I really tooo weird or what? I am a neat freak but inside my drawers & closets are a mess! WTH?

LOL, I didn't realize how dirty that sounded until I typed it. I've been saying it for years and this is the first time anything other than actual bananas actually occurred to me.
