balloon aversion!

never been a fan of balloons - not the texture but them popping.

a co worker has a birthday next week and we have decorated her desk but i cant go near the balloons as i am scared that they are gonna pop and make the loud noise that i hate.

my hands are sweaty as another co worker is blowing them up as i am worried that they will go BANG!!

i used to to think people who had a fear of balloons were mad - but now all these years later - due to tapering i am extra sensitive to car engines, sirens and people talking loudly - here i am - the same!

anyone else like this with loud noises?

Oh yea! We call 'em macho cars here...all those stupid big engine cars....Harley Davidson motorcycles (sorry if that offends anyone), HATE them. Sirens, I always end up cussing the victim, like if you didn't have to go and get sick or hurt I wouldn't have to listen to this insane noise pollution. Pretty sick huh? Balloons don't really bother me too much, but that's only bc I'm not around them very much, screaming kids, doors slamming, oh trust me I could go on....you're definitely not alone. But like all...it'll pass right?

Re: balloon aversion!

Monica has the same problem with Balloons, and she isn't on ADs. It leads for fun because we use a lot of them in the Halloween display along with the CLOWNS.

Enjoy the party the Balloons can't hurt you, but watch out for the clowns.

2005-2010 Effexor XR 112.5mg-262.5mg for PPD
June-Dec 2010 Poop-out (crash)
3 month cross taper off Effexor onto 40mg Cipralex, switched to 20mg Celexa, switched to 20mg Paxil
Nothing helped except waiting 7 months to stabilize on Paxil then starting to taper:
Oct'11 to Nov '12 20mg-10mg
March'13 to Feb'14 9mg -4mg
Feb 7/14-4.0mg
April 1/14-3.6mg
