Was just talking to DH about it and we realised that my anxiety over noise has been soooo much worse since we moved in here. We think it's being exacerbated by the ocean noise. We're literally just behind the sand dunes at the beach, so it's quite loud and constant, and it has actually been making it hard for me to hear things properly. So then when there's extra background noise - tv, kids, neighbours taking, background music, etc. I feel like I can't actually hear anything properly and it sets off my anxiety.
