Ok am sorry if that title didn't make sense but I'm not sure how to word this.

So say I'm in another room, my bedroom or bathroom or I dunno anywhere and maybe the door is closed. And I can hear people talking, like other people in the house or building having a conversation. But their voices are muffled slightly and I can't quite make out what they're saying but I can hear them talking.

That situation right there gives me so much hecking anxiety I can't stand it, I have listen to music in headphones at full blast to block it out. Or hum. Or sing. Or make noise around me so I can't hear it.

Otherwise, panic attack, high anxiety. Etc. Now if anyone else here gets this, please let me know what you do to cope with it, cause if I keep blasting my ears with music I might do some lasting damage and I don't want that.

Thank you in advance and I'm sorry this was such a long post ❤❤

when I was a child, my mother used to invite people round for christmas/ new year celebrations.

I'd shut mmyself in my room (because I wanted nothing to do with it), but used to get highky paronoyed when I heard them talking, even though the living room was at the other end of the house, it used to sound so close and I would struggle to even get up and get a drink!

I later developed a sort of survival kit if those situations happened.. make sure I have food, drink, access to a bathroom, all in my room so I didn't have to leave.
