I have diagnosed social anxiety.

When I hear laughter, I assume it's directed at me. When I hear insults, I assume they're directed at me, or any criticism etc.

I'm autistic/sound sensitive and can't tune out noise. Maybe they're being quiet. But it all sounds really noisy. Even my deaf parents say it's loud.

My neighbours (in the summer) and their workmen (now) keep going out into their garden and talking/laughing/swearing loudly.

I know on a logical level that it's not what my subconscious/anxiety tells me it is but when they keep swearing, laughing etc it just makes me feel really intimidated.

Sorry , have known how that is , Add a incessantly barking dog and it’s enough to do any persons mind in , if they are not thoroughly prepared. Ear plugs were not adequate back then .
