Life of avoidance.
I feel I spend my most of my life avoiding fun. I avoid places that will have me sitting in the sun, so no sporting events, no beach and no 4th of July parties. I avoid alcohol so no beer after a hard day at work. I avoid Chinese food because MSG could be lurking there. I avoid sausage for the same reason so it's plain pizza or just eggs in the morning. I no longer go to concerts because the loud music is a trigger. It's the same reason I leave wedding receptions early. The smell of ammonia is a trigger so I avoid some cleaning products and have to hold my breathe in some restrooms. I avoid train rides and long trips because no seat is comfortable enough for a long trip.
Unfortunately all this avoiding has friends and family thinking I'm unsociable or disinterested or worse I'm avoiding them.
