Struggling with Generalized Anxiety Disorder


I'm new here and hoping to get some guidance. 6 weeks ago my wife and I bought our first house. It is a great house and I feel bad for having anxiety about it, but we are next to a fairly busy street and I can't stop thinking about the street noise. I have always grown up in houses that were in the middle of a neighborhood where sound wasn't an issue. I feel like I should have known that the street noise would be an issue. I actually was dealing with it fine, but have since convinced myself that I made a terrible mistake and I will never get used to the noise. At night I'm fine, but when I wake up in the morning I think about the street noise immediately. I then carry that anxiety around in my chest all day. I can't focus and I can't eat. I know I can't sell the house because we just bought it, but I feel helpless. Am I crazy for feeling this way?

Thank you.
