I don’t know why, but certain sounds irritate me and this seems to be amplified when I am “off-balance.” My husbeast likes to watch YouTube videos on our tv about guns, military history, etc. and it seems like 95% of the narrators (not sure if this has anything to do with it, but they are all men) have a voice that gives me brain trouble. My mom’s voice does it sometimes too. She has a deep voice for a woman. The people on YouTube don’t have particularly deep voices. On the contrary, I would say that they are not deep. I call it a headache, but my head doesn’t hurt per se. It feels like I have slightly increased intracranial pressure and all other sounds become annoyances too. Certain vocalists and musical keys do the same thing, as does the sound of the water spilling from the filter in my aquarium.
I call it a headache, but my head doesn’t hurt per se. It feels like I have slightly increased intracranial pressure. When this happens, my ears feel sensitive and other sounds become annoyances too, such as certain musical and vocal keys (although I couldn’t tell you which ones) and the sound of the water cascading out of the filter in our aquarium.
I don’t know how to make it stop other than to remove myself from the situation. I feel bad asking my husbeast to choose a different thing to watch and it sucks when I’m at my mom’s house and I have to leave.
Does anyone else experience something like this? How do you handle it?
