I feel that too, especially at nights when I try to sleep.

I’m hypersensitive too…Is just bad joke pushing your buttons.

I do find it easier to just play instrumentals when I work as just cannot process song lyrics and read at same time anymore.

When I start getting hypersensitive to sound and light it’s not a good sign.

Take care and I hope you can find a way to decompress the stress.

Is it a warning sign of psychosis? Or should I watch out for moods?

For me personally… it’s a warning sign of an episode…

But for stuff like this… you might want to jot down in a journal… see if there are other stress triggers that making you more sensitive.

I know there has been a lot of change in your life recently… that might be triggering some stress???

Maybe ear plugs could help?

is hyper sensitivity related with psychosis…???

I think it is somewhat the same for me, on the other hand, I did not notice this just prior an episode yet. But during psychosis some sounds seem so incredibly loud… it almost hurts.

It also seems like everything gets too much…

When I’m level… the fan motor… the fridge the clock… I can ignore. But when I’m not doing well… I hear it all… and more… It can get pretty noisy.
