scared of loud noises - September 10th 2017, 05:57 PM

so for the past few years I've been dealing with insecurities and just hating myself in general. Last year I had a counselor in my school who I used to talk to but she had to leave. For the past year I'm not really sure what's been wrong with me- I flinch at unexpected noises and I question every single thing I do. I'm not sure whats wrong with me but I've been so scared of loud noises and It's gotten to the point where when a teacher raises his/her voice i shiver and want to cry.

I'm tired of feeling this way and I'm not sure what to do. We have a new counselor in school but I'm nervous to talk to her. We also have a psychologist but I feel awkward contacting him.

any words of advice?

Sorry to hear that you have been dealing with a lot of insecurities and self-hate. We can't diagnose but flinching and being sensitive to noises can be related to may different things including problems with your ears, high anxiety in general and even certain learning difficulties. It sounds like you are unsure of yourself, which can be linked with anxiety, but even on it's own is worth seeking counselling for.

It can be nerve wracking approaching a new counsellor but counsellors should understand that, so it's definitely worth trying to talk to the counsellor.
