Ok is this like an anxiety or ADHD thing? I absolutely can not stand the sound of the gardeners. It like makes my bones cringe. Same with the sound of my neighbors vacuum.

    I would gather it's maybe more so ADHD. There are certain sounds I cannot handle on most days but sometimes it doesn't bother me at all. It's weird.

    I cannot handle the leaf blowers, both sound and smell. I have always been sensitive to loud and repetitive or ongoing sounds. I guess that would fall more under ADHD. I never really thought of what causes it to bother me. I was forced to "just deal with it" so, I focused on how to make it easier to deal with.

      Like I've never been diagnosed with ADHD but I think I am. I can't stand this. they are actually power washing our apartments and the sound is like a lawn mower. of course it's on the only day I've had off this week and I have a migraine. I'm super pist. also haven't had a chance to clean my balcony so now they are gonna fine me. I hate my apartments. every week its some construction bullshit. I need to move it's so intrusive hete

        I've never been dx with ADHD either, but my kids and my sisters kids are. I'm positive I have it. Lawnmower noise is horrible. I definitely understand your circumstances with the apartment. Some landlords forget to take into account that construction/maintenance on the buildings can intrude on our ability to comply with certain regulations. They can be money hungry mongrels. 😡

    Sounds like you have a bit of misophonia. Look it up. It's really interesting.

    This may explain ehy my daughter hates the grounds keepers working on her lawn so much. She's diagnosed with ADHD.

    Sounds maybe like it’s ADHD, but I have ASD and I have, what I call, “ick noises” and “bad touches”. So the noises are things like, how people hate the sound of nails on a chalkboard, but for me it’s like, whistling, scratching certain surfaces, some dog barks, and a few other things. It causes sensory overload sometimes and other times it just makes me want to crawl inside myself lol. So idk I think some people are just more sensitive to sounds and touches than others. 🤷
