Hey everyone I'm Amy and decided to join this group because I've been having problems with noises bothering me.  I don't know if its because I'm older or what.  I turned 40 last year. I also have CP.  I have other medical issues as well such as: type 2 diabetes, anxiety, depression, PCOS, and have had HPV. Yes I am a mess.

    Hi @Ayoung1979 and a warm welcome to the community, great to have you with us. :)

    Have you experienced noise sensitivity before?

    Here is some information from the NHS website which you might find useful.

    Hi @Ayoung1979 -  Welcome to the community from me too. I'm sorry to read you're having trouble with noises bothering you just now. Have you phoned your GP for their advice? You're in good company here as there are many members facing several medical issues, so you're not alone. I hope you get to the bottom of the noise problem as soon as possible however. As you can see we have really friendly members, & we're all here to support you in any way we can, even if it's just chatting here. :)

    Thank you Chiarieds! No I haven't told her about noises bothering me yet because it seems petty. If it gets worse then I will tell her.

    I'm sorry @Adrian_Scope I haven't immediately gotten back with you.  Noises like loud music and from the TV if its too loud.
