    I Need My Silence!

    I can't focus on anything when there's any form of noise. I mean, I can listen to the radio when I'm driving or whatever, but like when I'm doing homework or studying, I have to have COMPLETE SILENCE. Sometimes people will be talking, and I say that it's bothering me, so they...

    By people really. Like I know

    that sounds bad, but sometimes I just really don't want to talk or be talked to. I don't want to be bothered or disturbed. And when people talk continuously even though they aren't getting a response, I don't even know. But I was in the car on my way home from school and my nana...

    Curious:

    I seem to be annoyed or irritated by really abrupt sounds like something falling on a floor, a slamming door, clanging and especially telephones or loud text notifications. It makes me feel anxious and irritated simultaneously.

    Yeahh.. So... Don't Make Noise.

    I don't like a lot of noise. (Note: noise does not equal music.) A lot of noise makes me feel nervous... and then I lash out. Also, loud noises. Like the TV. Sometimes I simply can't stand the TV and I have to turn it off, even if someone is watching it, because I feel like I'll...

    Very Sensitive

    I think this may be a weird story becuase there are times where I need noises to go on. A fan example, is a good noise that helps me concentrate. I can't sleep silently at night. I need either music, the TV, or the fan/AC to run. As long as it's pleasant and soothing sounds, I'm...
