I worked at a fast food restaurant, and at the time this happened I had been working here for a year and a half. Bit of context, I was 17 at the time and have anxiety. It can vary in severity on a daily basis, but I sometimes have really bad sensory overload. I bought myself a pair of noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones, so I can block out all noise. These cost me £220, a major investment for me as I was only a part timer and made about £160-£300 a month depending how many shifts I worked.
This gives me life.
This tale was a balm to my soul
