Just started noticing mouth noises

I have had bouts of anxiety and depression through out my life but have been feeling pretty good for the past couple of years after finally seeing a doctor about it and was on zoloft for about a year or so. That seemed to really help and I eventually went off it and have had moments of anxiety from time to time but it never really stuck and I was able to fight it off. Things were good for a while until about a month or so ago when it felt like anxiety was coming back again and it seems to be sticking around a little longer now and I'm worried it wont go away and get worse.

On top of that I think I may have developed OCD. I've noticed in the past it may have crept in a little bit but not for long, for instance I remember going through a little phase of seeing a bumper sticker on a car and being fixated on it until I could read the whole thing. If I was driving and saw a bumper sticker, it would bug me unless I could read the whole thing and would try to get close enough to read it. And I remember once, I was on a walk with my wife and saw one on a car we walked by but couldn't read it and it bugged me the rest of the day and night until the next day when I drove by it to read it. I remember getting a huge feeling of relief when I was able to find out what it said. But then I was like, crap! This is really weird and can't go on doing this every time I see a bumper sticker! So I did my best to avoid looking at bumper stickers and that went away pretty quick.

But now it seems I developed a new thing with noticing some of the noises people make with their mouths when talking. like little clicking noises after sentences. And sometime if someones mouth is dry it'll crackle a little more than normal. In general, this stuff doesn't gross me out or anything, it's just driving me crazy that i'm now looking for it every time someone finishes a sentence! And the worst is with my wife because I've noticed she makes a clicking noise at the end of her sentences most of the time and I can't help looking for them and it's really driving me crazy! I've noticed it with one of my co-workers too so I'm thinking they've probably always made these noises and I've never paid any attention to them. But now I do and I can't stop!!! Has anyone had a similar experience? This is really starting to get me depressed and I keep thinking this is always going to bug me and I don't want to mention to my wife, "hey you make this clicking sound while you talk, can you try not to do that please?" I just want to stop noticing it!!! Any help advice or comfort would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Just started noticing mouth noises

Those noises make me freak out inside. Any mouth noise that isn't vocal just feels wrong to me. I don't really cope with it, I just judge the people doing it.
There's a Breyer's ice cream taster I see on tv, sometimes and I rarely feel such revulsion for someone. I want to tell him off.
