In a way I might still even have my job if I wasn't so sensitive to loud noise, the noise of the horns that day was the trigger that set everything that day in motion.
That's really sad JS, the world's such a noisy place now that it's almost impossible to avoid completely. I'm assuming that if you were able to access the right treatment you'd also see an improvement to your noise sensitivity?

That must be hard for you BEVS. Is it all smells that you're sensitive to, or just certain ones?

Damn and blast those construction people. Yes, they have a job to do, but you'd think they'd be a bit more courteous about making so much noise early in the morning when they're that close to homes.

Not hard. Just is what it is for me now. Yes. It is a whole lot of smells. I am older so if something is not OK I remove me or speak up. I really don't care. I get on with the smell and slight essence of smell thing best I can. It is just a bit restricting . Same the noise thing whether loud or soft. I don't do shopping either really because of light, sound, smell, as J knows. I pick the times. I'm fine with that. I always have been.

It is MrBEVS that puts up with it.

Just do the best you can and understand that it is the world today is all you can do.

Looking back I am like my Dad. There again we were both thought to have a nose , an eye and an ear. So there are positives.

Having said that, the upside is that I am bonkers and happy enough to be so these years

Treatment would help teach the necessary skills to learn how to function better, BPD treatment is all about learning skills, which is why is winds up being so expensive, takes a long time and requires both group skills groups and individual therapy with a therapist who is well versed in the disorder, its tricky disorder to treat.

When the construction was going on near us, it drove me bonkers even with ear plugs.

Pat couldn't handle crowds, so shopping could be a nightmare, we used to go to supermarkets soon after they opened, and avoided town centers at busy times, amazingly though she loved markets, and they could get quite crowded, and she would stand at a stall waiting to be served surrounded by people.

On a local FB community page someone posted a video of a female staggering and falling over in the road. She then fell over again in a parking space and didn't get up. The car she'd previously got out of, reversed out of their space with the passenger door still up, drove in a semi circle into the space with the female, driving over the top of her in the process. It was horrific and the poster gave no warning. Since then there have been so many people posting horrific stuff and laughing. The women concerned were obviously completely off their heads on ICE or similar. There was absolutely nothing even vaguely amusing about it. Apparently it was funny because 'people like that are bringing down the suburb and probably deserve what they get'. I can't get my head around that.

I'd suggest it's people who joked about a woman being run over who are 'bringing down the suburb'. They sound like a mob of meatheads. As for the person who posted such a horrific video, words fail me. Where were the page's moderators, or is it unmoderated?

it goes back to who filmed the poor woman and uploaded it in the first place?

It’s horrible when people who have no decency, let alone empathy or kindness, come crawling out into the daylight and pretend like this is a normal thing to think and say.

I would assume when she got run over it became a criminal matter, and the video became evidence. I'd hope so, anyway.

Well said YR I can't imagine the sort of person who would rather film something like that instead trying to stop it happening.

That would at least be something, but given that some psycho thought it would be a good thing to put it Facebook I doubt that they gave it to the police. But yes, hopefully the police were notified by people who saw the video.

Police have seen it and obviously attended along with ambulance. In fairness the majority of posters were horrified. As to why they posted it, wtf knows! They posted and then didn't reply to anyone. It's an open group, not sure if they have Admin or Moderators.

It may be just the one person running the page Pen in which case it all depends on their personal MO. You can report such stuff to Facebook who will take an overview . You can report the post itself to the page admin/moderator.
We had a local FB page which was supposed to be a regional community help , care, share page. Unfortunately the person running that lost the way somewhere and turned it into someone altogether more personal using it to target those that could not respond from their own rather odd and somewhat twisted perception.
Several reported the page and in the end pressure + people dropping the page ( I did both) suspended it. It made the local newspaper here at the time and was not too long after the dreadful bush fire .
Report it Pen. It is not something for a community page.

This place can be so bluddy frustrating. Choice is so limited and if you do see something odds are that it won't be possible to get your hands on whatever it is.

All I want are two decor screens by Matrix design Woodland. That is all I want. Bunnings stock them except oh no they don't. Well, not in any other design except for every kiwis desire, boring Fern . Everything fern. Meh!
I can see that Oz stocks Matrix Woodland design but Bunnings here won't deal with Bunnings there. Then I was asked why not have Fern Ums Because it won't bluddy look right mate.

I'm so over it atm. Unless you want what every man and his dog here has , you're stuffed.
