How do you deal with intolerance to noise? Some days are worse than others for me, on bad days a dripping tap or a plate scarping can be really horrible. I am much better when I am in a quite environment, but I have noticed if I stay in a too quite environment when I have no choice to be subjected to noise again, my symptoms are much. A recent example is me swearing involuntary at the singing birds (sorry birds) because I couldn't cope with the noise. So do I keep exposing myself to a certain level of noise in the hope that this will get better, i.e. carry on regardless or try and keep my environment as quite as possible. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
