Chris, could this be an "auditory processing" problem? Kind of like you hear things, but whether they get processed correctly, maybe isn't happening the same as a "normal" person, like the neurological synapses aren't processing correctly. You may want to look into "Sensory Integration Disorder" also called SIDs. Many people have sensory processing problems, it may be sounds, lights, too many crowds, too many people talking at the same time, loud noises, soft touch as irritating, too much tactile stimulation (touching), some other words that are related, but I don't know a whole lot about are vestibular and proprioceptive processing - they have more to do with physical coordination. A good book to check out about SI is "The Out-of-Sync Child" by Karol Kranowitz. This is really for parents of children with SI problems, but may help you as an adult in understanding it - may describe your childhood. The low self esteem and uncomfortable feelings outside of your usual zones are typical of SI. They like routine and predictability. It IS tough to handle different sensory input when your neuro system isn't processing like every one else's; thus low self esteem because it seems every one else is so much better at...It is easily confused with ADD. You may want to check out the alternative ADD treatments - Feingold diet - some chemicals in these foods may be affecting your neurotransmitters.
