Does anyone have their anxiety triggered when they hear the beeps of heart monitors on movies and shows? I can’t even watch medical shows without subtitles because when I hear the heart monitors I have to cover my ears, I just get so anxious. And one time I didn’t expect a survey scene and I had a little anxiety attack that caused me to cry when they put the patient to sleep.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I fortunately don’t have that issue, but that’s because I’m studying to be a nurse. There are definitely some sounds that trigger me though. Creepy ringtones, the sound before a storm warning on tv, someone vomiting…
mine is crime. which is sad because crime shows are my fav when my anxiety isn’t bad. 😔
Omg, this. I literally just heard a heart monitor on TV and got anxious right before I read this! I thought I was the only one.
I used to when I was still hearing. After becoming DeafBlind and all my other medical conditions started, just *thinking* of the hospital makes my anxiety go off the rails.
Those beeps, too, but alarms trigger panic attacks for me. Like almost immediately any fire alarms or security alarm and I'm panicking.
For me it's the sound of too many people and the sound of a tap or the simple beat thats constant and never ending. Sometimes it's too much chatter or mardi Gras music. Lol. Being from NOLA doesn't help. I avoid parades as much as possible. 😆
