Everyday at the work circus there is something that grinds my gears. My boss whistling and my supervisor humming. I know it should not get to me but it does. Many times I want quite. Though, those two things drive me up the wall and I want to scream at them to stop but I can’t.
I never thought of it as anxiety or sensory overload before. Though that makes perfect sense! I’m empathic, feel people’s energies and moods. I have trouble blocking it but I have gotten better at it. I process my thoughts, feelings and tons of information everyday. Things that annoy me are just an overload of my senses.
I have noticed that if I’m in a loud room it gets to me all the noise. My cellphone helps me focus on something else like the Internet to get thru it.
Or maybe I’m just a fairy in disguise too…..
