I cannot stand noise anymore. I used to listen to the radio in my car, but not anymore, it just irritates me. I have 3 young grandchildren and it is sometimes hard not to scream. I know where you are coming from. Sometimes my hubby will tell me to go lay down for awhile, because he knows it is bothering me. Then I feel guilty for leaving him to watch them alone.
There are other small things that irritate me now that never did before. I guess it's just another Fibro symptom. Take care and I think it is great that you are able to do all that you do!
Never regret something that made you smile!

I'm new to these boards and I've just been diagnosed with Lyme. I was checking out the Fibro and CFS boards to see how others are coping with similar things.
Noises can be grating and irritating, especially if I get tired. I have anxiety and once I started being treated for that, I found that those meds also give me big relief from the noise sensitivity.
We're mostly empty nesters, but when our daughter is home from school - well, she is a "crisis every minute" person. If I start feeling stressed out/ grouchy from the noise, I excuse myself, say I'm not feeling well, and go upstairs to the bedroom. I close the door and turn the TV onto something that's really just "white noise". Kind of an avoidance strat but it's better than being grouchy. Anyone else do that?
