    Bothers Me So Much!

    I really do hate being yelled at. My ex used to refer to it as being "shouted down" which fit the feeling perfectly.  There is nothing more futile than having a yelling match with someone when feelings are hurt and hearts are sore.  Often, I've been expected to allow it on the...

    I'm a Nervous Wreck

    When someone really is angry and yelling at me... if I'm not yelling back, I'm shaking and trying to leave. What's worse for me is hearing someone else yelling at someone else - that really turns me into a neuorotic freak. As much as I love my mom, she has quite the pair of lungs...

    I Can'T Stand It.

    When someone yells at me I just go into my shell. I can't stand being yelled at, it brings on flashbacks, and things I don't need to think about. Having complex PTSD compounds the experience and turns it into something traumatic. I'm learning to cope a little now, but it's still...

    I Don'T Cope Well With It At All

    I can't take it. It always just hurts me really bad and makes me really nervous so I end up going into my own little seclusion. In that little seclusion, I go blank and can only say "I'm fine, I'm okay," until i start weeping. I lock myself away from the world and cry 'til I feel...

    I don't just hate it,

    I can't process it like most people. My blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature go up, I feel a buzzing in my head. And I just want to lash back out.

    I'll Take The Blame If You'll Just Be Quiet

    All of my life,I've tried to avoid conflict. I'll let someone hurt me before I'll hurt them. I'll take the blame and make the apologies if you'll just be quiet and leave everyone alone.When i hear someone yell,I get so afraid,sometimes I physically shake.My parents never abused...

    I Won't Listen

    So raising your voice at me doesn't do any good. You can get your point across without trying to intimidate me or whatever it is you're trying to do before I tuned you out.

    I Really Hate It...

    I was yelled and screamed at a lot as a kid, which is why I think I hate yelling. Not only that, but I grew up with adults screaming at each other all the time and having to hide with my mother when I was really young. That was a really long time ago, but I think that's why...

    for no reason and sometimes I get the blame for said outbursts even though I didn't do anything wrong. The only times i've really disobeyed them or done anything to offend them was heckling at a school assembly that a school a friend used to go was taking place, but I had a...

    could do to me. I cannot handle yelling. too many memories come with yelling. it scares me. it makes me nervous, nauseous. I would rather someone hold a gun to my head then tell at me. I don't even like to hear others yelling. it makes me sweaty and shaky. yelling is my worst...

    When I get yelled at I don't get sad,

    I get angry. Especially when it's for no reason or for the smallest things. I don't know why but that's how I've been for a while.

    Scares the **** Out of Me!

    When someone yells at me it scares me so terribly because I don't know what they will do next. I normally just start crying. I don't know what to do or to say to calm someone down when they are yelling. It is the most terrifying thing to me. Talking loud is one thing but when it...

    When I was young my parents often fought

    and my dad yelled at my brother and I... I can't really handle it when people yell at me and confrontations scare me even more now but I still stand my ground and fight for myself no matter how much my voice trembles or how shaken up my body gets.

    I really hate being yelled at.

    When I get yelled at I feel like I did something wrong and it makes me want to cry. Every time someone yells at me I cry for no reason at all... It's weird sometimes but the feeling u get when ur getting yelled at is horrible and I would never wish it upon someone

    I Have Always Hated Yelling

    When people yell out of anger it sends chills down my spine, even if it isn't directed towards me. It makes me extremely anxious even hearing my neighbors fight. It just makes me uneasy and nervous.

    I think it is the worst.

    It doesn't matter if it's a boss, friend, significant other, or just some clown. Watching someone lose control and berate another human being is just trash...and horribly disappointing.

    I can't handle someone yelling at me.

    For years I was in a marriage that was verbally abusive. I never knew when he would blow up and just yell at me for any little thing. it got so bad that I would start shaking if he started to get loud. Well he died and now no one yells at me, usually. Tonight I was having a beer...

    I get really upset when someone yells at me.

    I get mad and tell them off, in which I sometimes cry during the process. I don't like people yelling at me (as I'm sure most people don't), it's really rude, and there's no reason for it.

    Today a customer yelled at Kitten

    and it got very sad. She had to subtly wipe the tears out of her eyes and go to the bathroom and cry after. Usually she doesn't cry like that anymore but it was just too much today! People are mean to Kitten cuz she's forgetful sometimes... :(

    so much, I get sick to my stomach at any sign of aggressiveness towards me. And I start shaking, and I cry, and it affects me for hours afterwards. Even if it's only one line that was shouted at me 😔
