> Just wondering...does anyone else notice an increased sensitivity to noise when they are depressed?

OOOHHH Yeah! In my job I visit different department stores. I spend most of my time in quite a few Wal*Mart electronics departments. Next time you're in a WM, check out the noise in electronics. It's like a nightmare sometimes. The whole back wall is TVs blaring. Then there's a boombox blaring on top of it. Then the store's music on top of it all. And the noisy hustle and bustle of customers. The phone ringing. The store intercom announcements. Oh man!

Then when I come home, my youngest is watching TV cartoons. And it's too loud! My oldest is blabbing on the phone. My wife has the stereo going. Oh man again!

I can always judge my overall sense of wellbeing by how I respond to noise in my environment. When I'm OK, noise is benign. Doesn't affect me. When I'm not OK, noise seems intensified and totally intolerable. It makes me feel like I am literally going crazy. There have been times I couldn't get out of a store fast enough. I just wanted to run out into the parking lot and SSCCRREEAAMM!
