I'm afraid there's something wrong with me - July 23rd 2011, 08:29 AM

Ever since I can remember certain noises set me off, it doesn't matter how big or little. I have to constantly have a fan on in my room because the silence hurts my head and makes it feel like I have a ton of pressure in my ears. If the fan isn't on I feel extremely hot, just the sound of it makes me feel better so sometimes when my dad is gone I'll turn the air conditioning down low just so it doesn't turn off as much and I don't feel the warmth through my body. I keep the fan in my room on 24 hours a day and 365 days a year no matter if it's already cold inside or if it's burning up, it's always on. Another thing is I feel like in certain situations I have to be in control. For instance, when I'm in the car I feel the need to be the driver.

I went into a store the other day and could hear the light bulbs buzzing and it drove me nuts. At school the older computers need to be turned off because I can't concentrate if they are making the annoying noise they are so good at.

My mom used to always tell me when she was still around that I would never find someone to want me because I was too nit picky and picked everything/everyone apart.

Truthfully, while I'm afraid there's something wrong with me I also feel these are just the
traits Virgo's have (I was born under the sign of Virgo). This does play a part in the way I see things because my religion involves the signs and such things.

If you think something is wrong with me please tell me. Don't call me crazy because of my religion, that's my only request.could I have ADD or something?

If you couldn't tell, my thoughts trail a lot. :/

I don't think there's anything wrong with you, to me it just sounds like that's how you are. There is a physical ailment however that causes an individual to perceive specific noices and sounds much louder than they actually are and can cause great discomfort to the point that some of these people stop leaving their home. If I remember what its called I'll post back in your thread.
