I have to laugh because I'm in that same boat with you!! I am well on the way of driving my husband batty-- and myself two steps after!
I have tried music. Sometimes a win but often I find distracts me and I find I humm over it
And --silence- Like others who responded, it seems dependant on the amount of stress in which I find myself under as the threshold of quiet I am capable without humming kicking in as a soothing/sound barrier
For me, distraction IS the commonality...
I'd say its almost autopilot with a hidden purpose. I am a little OCD, a nail biter (I know-I know), and have a healthy dose of type A personality in me though with age, I've mellowed.
I do take Synthyriod, but not any of the other medications anyone listed. I'm in pretty good healthy, mid40's...View Thread
