Welcome to Hw happy you have joined us here. Yes I get the same way. Sometimes just hearing a neighbor honk there horn has me climbing the walls. I also can't stand to hear the phone ring just that sudden noise I can feel my anxiety shoot thru my body. Hope this helps you out some please understand you are not alone in this anymore and there will be others that come by to give you more support. Please keep posting so we can all get to know each other better.
Hi noises - I get that too - anything, and I mean anything sudden and my anxiety level goes UP!!
My son can be in the kitchen and I'll know he's there and then he acidentally drops a knife or something, oh boy, it's on then - that will send me through the roof in a minute - he's gotten to where if something's about to happen - he'll call my name - which helps distract me, and lets me know somethings about to happen - he's gotten pretty good with his timing, as he is a boy and very clumsy
anyway, glad to have ya here..
I tend to get the samething when my horses go off in the spring and summer time when the fish are running I'll jump out of bed and grab the gun thinking that a bear is around and will go out looking for it just got to love OCD lol but for some resson I have no fear of going after a bear but ppl now that's another story.
Thanks a lot for your help and feedback.
We'll keep in touch for support.
I promise I will write back again
Never give up
we are often oversensitive to sound, light and smell
called being stimulous bound
earplugs or background white noise can help with noise
I have two kids. One is 5 and the other 11.
When they were young they use to cry a lot up to 11 or midnight.
I remember I could not stand the crying.
Remember it will pass, find someone whom you can trust to babysit your children.
go out and enjoy some time
Yep, noises can send me into a major fit!...Especially when they are continious. The TV being on too long will simply drive me mad. I have a 9 year old son and the cartoons and video games are on continously! Usually I end up needing an ativan to clam me down. I also have to find a quiet place for awhile which is close to impossible here...LOL Your not alone in this one.
