#166 - 08/01/01 02:48 AM Confusion: Comments deeply Appreciated!!!

Hello family,if I may,
Kept editing the title hoping to get some response for this preplexing issue to me.
So odd that for 2 days I was what i thought going to just die and now I have some peace of some sort. Gratitude to God.
I have had a possible awareness I am anxious to get input on. For as long as I can remember there have been certain things that have bothered me a great deal. Well bothered is not the word. Drive me to the point of screaming and fleeing. These are a bit odd but who knows?
I have never been able to be in a room with a ticking clock. I can not stand a dripping faucet.

This post was really interesting. I wonder, how many of us have other flashback problems with the people we love?

I know that I always have to have noise. I always have the tv or radio on, pretty loud. I think I like the distraction, so I don;t have to think about my real problems or be alone with myself. It;s like the tv or radio is company for me.Also, with all that other noise, I don't have to talk to anybody.
