Does anyone else hate fireworks?
« on: July 04, 2014, 09:30:54 PM »
So, it is the 4th of July and it has just gotten dark and fireworks are going off all over the neighborhood.  I am really tense.  I am not afraid of them exactly, but it hate loud sudden noises.  I kind of relax and then another huge boom goes off and I get a burst of adrenaline and my muscles bunch up.  I should probably just put my iPod on to drown out the noise.  I just wondered if anyone else had this issue.

I don't fear fireworks....I look at it as thunder and lightning. Loud and bright.

I think that's a good idea to put the iPod on to drown it out...or maybe, look from your window and get a free light show...which might be kind of like exposure therapy.

Take comfort knowing the 4th is once a year. Sorry I couldn't really help you, though...

Thanks for your reply.  The iPod really helped.  I'll have to remember that next year.

yes, but any type of loud noise startles me and makes me jump but with fireworks IF I can see them it is better if not then it is unexpected every time and I jump out of my skin it feels like. I turn the tv up and just do all I can to distract still very hard though but I make it through .

I just don't like to be startled or surprised at all. Exposure is the key to getting over this for su

Memorial Day , Labor Day are two other days I hear fireworks being set off also around where I live then I also have a guy near me that shoots a gun off scares me so bad because he is just a mean person I hear him yelling at his wife a lot so there is another trigger! lol YAY ME!

Take care good idea with the Ipod!
