loud noises phobia, how do i get rid of it?



Feb 8, 2019
this is really affecting my life since i really get scared easily by loud sound and

i'll feel my heart beating fast and nervous as hell i end up cover my ears and feel embarassed.

no matter how many times i hear them, i'll always get scared.

some examples:

- fireworks

- thunderstorms

- loud car's exhausts

- baloons

- some dogs barking (mostly larger dogs)

my guess would be my ears are really sensitive to this kind of "sudden loud noises"

because i dont have a problem on concerts or cinemas, where the loud sound is continuous.

anyone else here experience this? how do you handle this?
i already tried to use ear-plugs and i still get scared anyway, plus i wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them on the street
