Oh. My gosh. This really and truly is me. I've been diagnosed with this and with Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome. It was such a relief to realize that I wasn't just an unreasonable bitch, but that I process sounds differently from other people.
Never apologize for having standards and expectations of how to be treated. Not at the stake of your integrity, morals, or anything else. If people can't step up, then they can step down. It's a privilege to be a part of someone's life, not a given right.
For Luke....you are one rude bitch to pretend you cared that my mom died with your little text but since you didn't answer me back I know you are a fake cunt with no morals. Don't contact me again you little whore.You make me sick.
