How on earth I’ve ended up working in a busy office environment on the phones.. ? It’s almost beyond me 🤣

So relateable! I worked in call centres for years and certain pitched voices or sounds on the phone just set my teeth on edge...especially if people are breathing too deeply or rustling paper.

I've always been extremely sensitive to sudden loud noises, especially high pitched or clicking/ticking sounds. I experience misophonia too where I can't stand the sound of certain people's voices, it's with NO ill-intention towards those people just the sounds they make!

I'm a musician so I think this works both ways, I react in strong negative ways to certain sounds and really resonate in a positive way with others which I'm drawn to so I think this plays a big part in my creative side.
