I feel relieved to know that I’m not the only one suffering with this. Yesterday we were sitting in a drive-thru and the car behind had his bass extremely loud. I felt like if I had a gun I would have shot him. These violent thoughts are what scares me, it’s irrational but I want to destroy the people who are making this noise. I also hate loud cars, trucks, motorcycles, any vehicle that makes excessive noise.
I too want to move outside the city where I don’t constantly hear vehicles come and go. I don’t feel like my nervous system can take much more and I’m afraid of a serious breakdown. I currently wear earbuds at home 90% of the time and my husband says it makes him feel isolated and lonely. This condition SUCKS. I hate it so much, I just want to feel calm, normal, and be able to ignore most noise.
I’m mostly triggered by traffic noise, eating sounds (but usually only if I cannot see the person), my husband’s constant nail-biting, foot or leg bobbing, a neighbor whistling (I hate him severely), and low frequency bass noise.
I feel so tired of living this way.
