When people raise their voice?

I dont post on this site much but

does anyone else get panic attacks when people raise their voice at you?
or even if its not at you,for instance if i hear people yelling at eachother i get nervous and sometimes blush. I hate it. if people raise their voice or just have a mean tone at me i start blushing and my heart beats really fast and i think im going to cry.

i hate having SA

sometimes at the most random moments I hear this man screaming/yelling in my head D: like at a distance but still close enough to hear that primal-ness in his voice, it's pretty freaky. so when people scream in movies or something like that it reminds me of it

No panic attacks, that I can remember, but when people yell or are unnecessarily loud, I tend to draw into myself. It makes me incredibly anxious and annoyed. I get really quiet and keep my distance.

I am really sensitive to that. When customers are pissed off at work and raise their voices to me I feel like I'm going to cry and my voice gets all quivery. When I hear my parents raise their voices at each other that makes me extremely anxious as well. Never know what's going to happen.

Even though I have no intention of crying at all, I do. But never when my parents shout. I would love to not cry but it makes the situation worse and i have no control over it at all

Oh my word, yes. I hate hearing anyone shouting or raising their voice in any context, even if they are nothing to do with me. It brings my anxiety to the fore straight away and just makes me want to run away...

My best guess is that it reminds me of the death of innocence, which is deeply saddening and distressing.

Heart beats like crazy, thats why everone in my family thinks I'm the fixer.
I always feel like I'm the only one trying to make the situation better..when it's probably just cause conflict makes me so uncomfortable.

I absolutely hate arguments or anyone raising their voice, I feel so nervous and scared. I just have to escape when someone does. (Obviously as long as it's not at me). If it's at me, I just shrink and feel so tiny.
