Hi, I was just wondering if anyone here might have a similar situation as me. Noises overwhelm me, in my home, it is okay, my husband and child are okay, but, I generally do not like noise. I live in an apartment, and noises such as banging, loud televisions, stereos all overwhelm me and move me to tears and panics. I don't even like my own television too loud. Its hard to explain, and even more frustrating to live with. There is a history of depression and anxiety in my family. Maybe understanding these both on the personal side as well to a professional side, I just feel silly talking about it. I come here today because even as I write this I am streaming back tears because I feel overwhelmed. The loud noises confuse me. Am I being silly and hypersensitive? Or is this a real condition in which I might consider getting help from my physician, or is it just me taking my personal preferences too far..I know that this is just an opinion board, but opinions would be so nice, and to know I don't suffer alone.View Thread
