Great answer- thanks! I think I like hypersensitive better; it seems to me to have more of a negative connotation than thin-skinned.

Fragile is good, but its connotation is more on the positive side while I'm looking for something with a negative subtext.

I'm being a little slow here, but which two idioms is this phrase mixing?

comment A single word that means “to push yourself”
I chose this as the answer as opposed to strive (thank you @FumbleFingers!) because I am looking for an overtone of self-control rather than effort.
