I left because I was not feeling well. (New medication)
I've always had a hard time in a group of people who were all talking at once and no one was actually listening. It's kinda like bluegrass music, it's fun for the players but the listener doesn't get nearly as much out of it.
I mentioned this problem to Gordon Bok a few years ago, and he has the same problem. Multi sources of sound are impossible to process, and they literally "get on my nerves" forcing me to retreat.
Now, having said that, when I feel ok, and have had a drink or three, I'm able to tolerate all the noise.
I know what you are thinking, it's my problem, and you are right. I just have to deal with it my way.
