I know this is slightly different but I have to leave the room when that commercial for abused animals comes on. It has Sara McLauglin singing 'In the Arms of The Angels' in the back ground it is shows graphic pictures of animals that have been maimed in every possible way by their owners. I know that's the point as it is so sad that people will send money to support their recovery but it literally makes me sick to my stomach...and filled with anger.
I too turn my head or leave the room when there is violence shown in any manner on television.
Yesterday my granddaughter was on one side of the TV talking to me, the TV was on and my DH was on the other side of the TV talking to me and I thought I was going to go nuts, I thought I can't take this kind of chaos anymore. I have spent most of my life with a house full of kids and noise and now my body tightens up and I just want to scream, "STOP IT". Now when I have kids it's only for a few days but I really don't think I could live in a house with kids everyday.
I think all of our senses are heightened with fibro smell, hearing and touch seems to be mine.
luv and hug
I hardly watch tv, haven't been to the movies since 2003. I can't sit in a theatre, the chairs and the sound system send me out of my mind. I cannot stand 'heroic' music, everything is blasting. I like music, but not vibrating in my body. Nothing really appeals to me from ads I've seen. I rarely put the tv on, my DH can't sit in the living room w/o the tv on. I'm not into reality shows, I can't stand a lot of noise, violence, tension. I get antsy and have to leave the room. I have my radio on low during the day, while I do my stuff. In the eves, I'm basically home alone and it is peaceful. If I choose to play a cd, it is on low while I read. I don't want to be overwhelmed.
My DH will have the tv on when we have company over, I can't stand it. Turn the set off. I can't focus on two things, and I can't hear two things at one time.
God bless. Alice.
