Why would someone gain comfort from their iPod, and why does my mind work in strange ways? (Please read for details)
Well you see... I can't stand the radio, or any sounds that people may make (including talking, or if they drop something or make some sort of noise). Sounds in general infuriate me. I am a person who listens to any kind of rock or metal music, and I cannot stand music of any other kind. I refuse to listen to the radio, because the songs on there just anger me, especially as most are fake, and just overall crap. Anyway, in result I take my iPod everywhere I go, including school where I am usually allowed to listen to it in just about all of my classes. The other day I accidentally left my iPod home, and I was so frustrated. I didn't want to talk to anyone, or do any work because I can't go without my iPod. I needed it.
Weird thing is, today at school I was listening to my music in some classes, but there were other classes where I didn't and I was not bothered by that. I believe my iPod gives me a sense of security. Knowing it is in my bag always makes me feel better, and I can still work without listening to it. Having it close to me seems to keep me calm. It is a completely different story if my iPod is home. Is this a normal feeling?
