> > For me it's more about noise. I feel caged and induces anxiety when I'm stuck listening to unpleasant sounds. or a wierd one is when people jitter or shake their legs. it's been murder being a student. I'm surrounded by people shaking their legs during class. I can't explain it, but it drives me insane. I remember the first time it bothered me when I was 11 in a classroom and a big boy next to me shook his leg sooo fast all the time it drove me mad. And since then I can't take it (I'm 33!). It induces anger, intolerance, a feeling of being caged and subjected to torture.
> I understand exactly. There are things that trigger me too, like soup slurping. I literally have to leave the room if someone is slurping their soup. Or there are those who can't seem to take a drink of something without following it EVERY TIME with an "Ahhhh". Or the people who can't sneeze without some sort of a shreiking noise - that they insist they can't control it. Even the "kissing noises" on TV during a romantic scene ruin the show for me. And then there are the "gum snappers" in church, of all places. Sometimes it irritates me to the point of being afraid that I won't be able to contain myself. I know it is really MY problem, but just telling yourself to ignore it DOES NOT WORK!!!

SIMUS! I'm sorryyyyy to have forgotten these posts. REALLY! Thank you for pointing me back to this direction for review. You have no idea how busy I've been. just bought a house, started a new (and 2nd) job, found housemates, started a new quarter in grad school, tore down wallpaper and painted, put together thousands of furniture, etc. etc. and I've gone crazy thru' it all w/ dogs barking!!!! hence me questioning all of this possible SID deeper and soo sorry for forgetting about our previous correspondence.

What you describe above sounds like me; but can you imagine NOT being able to leave the room of the soup slurper? That's normally things that get me to brink on the edge of insanity. When I can't leave the situation. little things that good people do drive me almost to kill them. RAGE. it's awful. Honestly ALL? Moodswings and depression is a walk in the park compared to this.
It's got to be more than BP; which is what I unfortunately experience too.

So you have been dxed as OCD? Have you ever heard of or considered what we've been talking about the SID? Is it new to you too?
I actually cried when I looked at a website for SID. God. I MAY be able to get help?!
let's keep in touch.
