Omg yes I can completely relate to this! My biggest pet peeve in particular is when someone interrupts me when I am trying to read, listen to music or watching something on the TV. It takes SO much effort for me to focus on whatever I’m doing that this irrational anger-monster just explodes when someone breaks my concentration. It gets particularly bad when someone who is a friend or a family member interrupts me because they KNOW how hard it is for me to concentrate, and on some level it makes me feel like they don’t care about the struggle I go through just to complete a simple task.
