Question Noise

I can't stand noise from keyboards and stuff like that. It drives me nuts. How many of you have that issue?
every person that I have met in my life has brought with them a lesson. I may not have enjoyed the lesson learned, but I have always enjoyed attending class.

Re: Noise

Mine are the sound of fingernails tapping on countertops, candy wrappers in movie theaters (actually any sounds in a theater), whistling, multiple conversations in one room, etc.
I actually feel my blood pressure rise and I want to scream!
I'm Type I, and I've heard that being bothered by certain noices can be a "bipolar thing"!

Re: Noise

Hello There,
Is it a specific noise that makes you cringe or is it the fact that it is disturbing you or your thoughts? I cant stand the vaccum cleaner on, or people talking with a television on etc, multiple noises because my head is busy enough on its own. I wouldnt worry we all have our quirks. Show me a sane person and i will cure them!!!!!
Take care

Re: Noise

Oh yes, I totally get what you mean. A loud tv, whistling, tapping fingers, arguing, and this is strange but if I like a song I can listen to it loud, but if I don't like the music playing loudly it makes me feel like I am going to crawl out of my skin. There are others but I can't think of them right now. I also have the same with clothing- if it doesn't feel just right it seems that I can't get it off fast enough and go through a few clothing changes until I find something that doesn't make my nerves scream. Just seems that sometimes the nerve endings are over sensitive in both areas.

Re: Noise

Hi, Im really bad for feeling like i have to scream when i hear other people typing, my poor brother has had to endure my wrath from typing very fast and refusing to shut his door!
Im the same though, i get very very irritated by small noises, crunching/rustling ones mostly. is this a trait of people with bi polar or am i just really intolerant?? I kinda suspect i do suffer from it because my moods can change rapidly.
but i can totally sympathise with how you guys feel

Re: Noise

spoke to my counselor yesterday and it is a trait that almost all bi-polar people have in all types. That bites.

Re: Noise

Any little noise literally makes me crazy. Eating noises, loud cars, babies crying, chewing gum, lip smacking, slurping coffee, gum, popping, biting into an apple, crunching on chips etc. I often have to leave the room or put on headphones to escape the torture of the noises. If for some reason I can't get away from the person making the noise than all I can think about is cracking the person in the head with a pipe just so they will just, “Shut the **** UP”!!
