Sometimes I’ll end up hitting a part of my body on something or hot water splash on me or get minorly hurt somehow and a yelp of pain will automatically come out. I’m okay with it when I’m alone, but when I’m around others I try to keep from making animal sounds. Sometimes I don’t catch myself in time and a yelp will escape out. Then everyone will stare at me weirdly in surprise and may ask, “Did you just yelp? Like a dog?” or “What was that?” and I’ll just reply with “I don’t know. It was just a random sound.” Sometimes when something of someone gets on my nerves really bad I’ll growl and snarl and when they ask I try to play it off as my stomach making really loud, weird noises. Not to mention the shifts that can start at bad times in public. Oy.
