    Default Intolerance to background noise?

    Wasn't sure where to put this, so apologies for the very boring post in general chat.
    Does anyone else find themselves increasingly intolerant to background noise? Am I turning into a crotchety old lady? I can't gave the tv or music on unless that's what I'm concentrating on. This morning I was reading the paper and DS was endlessly chatting, DD was banging stuff and DP was watching football highlights on his phone. I got pretty stabby and flounced off to the bedroom. I just cannot handle all that noise any more. It never used to bother me. So I'm wondering if it's a 'getting older' thing, or if it could be a symptom of something else?

    I'm a bit the same FL. I've noticed it the past year or so, I have a hugely reduced tolerance for it and also get pretty narky and short. It affects my concentration. It's probably since having DS.

    Yup, since being pregnant. Have zero tolerance. I think that's because it's blerry constant!

    I think I'm intolerant to noise in general; not just the background stuff. My hearing is very sensitive, and I find if I'm in a noisy environment for more than about 5 minutes, I'm likely to come out of it with a bad headache.

    I am very intolerant to noise, I always have been though - nightclubs were a killer for me, my poor ears! I hate TVs on when people are talking, so frustrating!

    I have definitely noticed that since having kids. Before kids we played music practically 24/7 at home. Now it drives me nuts. DH still loves listening to music but has virtually given up having music on as I'm constantly asking him to turn it down.

    DD1 has a CD player in her room constantly blasting Rhianna, One Direction, Katy Perry - so now I have to deal with hers as well

    I put it down to the constant noise level in my life. I never have quiet head space time so treasure any moment I can get.

    Sometimes it almost feels like I can hear someone mowing their lawn 6 houses away as loudly and clearly as if they were doing it right next to me.
