24 w/ Auditory Processing Disorder HELP
by Hannah Spurrier
Yes, I'm Hannah & I'm 24 years old and I've always gotten really irritated with small noises other people claim they can't even hear.... I have trouble concentrating when taking a test ... when reading ... I can't stand it ... it's like nails on a chalk board but yet it's just someone chewing...
I can't be in the same room with someone while they are eating! It's seriously effecting my life ... I've been seeing a psychiatrist for it ... I'm on plenty of anxiety/depression medicine to help with irritability ... He says it may not be fixable my medication ... yet another doctor suggested I might have ADD but my psychiatrist doesn't want to put me on it until my mood "stabilizes"
People do not like to be around me and I can't even watch TV with my family because they drive me up the wall with all their sounds....
HELP!! How do I cope?
