Yes, it does make sense. What kind of therapy do you think you need? I have not gone down the path of therapy at all, but I learn by reading.
And I totally get the noises, load noises set me off too, so I break that down like this. Some loud noises I can manage, the phone ringing, all my friends know, text me first before you ring, if you don't, I wont pick up the phone, as I have just gotten a fright. So, this is managable. Noises, like what occurred for me four hours ago, I am at work and a kid lite a fire in her room, which set of the alarm. I have know control over that, I immediately was shaking as I got a heck of a fright, but, I logically have conversations with myself to keep me calm, my head sounds like this. 'I know you are shaking and just got a fright, it's ok, it's just the alarm, now you need to get the kids moving out of the building, and start giving staff instructions. So lets start with what you need right now.......and action kicks in.
I calmed really quickly with some of the kids offering me thier blankets as we were waiting outside at night, and them asking if I was ok.
So that sort of illustrates my process and the way I just live inspite of it, it isn't easy, some days are really tough and take all my energy, some days I have to just stay home and rest, but mostly, I just get on.
