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?

Intolerance to background noise?

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.
