I’m having trouble with sensory overload. It’s mainly noises that cause me trouble. I live with my parents and they have 2 budgies and an African grey who makes high pitched beeps and chirps. The budgies fight a lot and sqwuack loudly. We have two dogs who’s nails click on the hardwood floor and they get excited easily and pace and I start hearing every noise 10x louder than I feel it actually is and my anxiety and stress levels rise. I have to physically leave the house to calm down, but I would rather not. Is there any way(s) I can distract my brain or something?

      I put headphones in and gtfo, its hard when all of the stimuli is out of your control. Taking a shower helps me calm down, i take like 3 short showers a day just so i can function. It sucks ass but youll make it through!

      I have a mantra I repeat in my head. And I also use noise canceling headphones.
