Everyday Noise is Getting Overwhelming

I genuinely don't know what's wrong with me.

I was in a zoom class a moment ago, and we were doing some sort of graph, but since I'm not in-person I didn't understand much of it. Everybody who was in the classroom was talking at once, and I can't leave the zoom, and my brother is clinking dishes together and everything is just getting so loud? I kept getting more and more worked up and I wanted everything to be quiet for a minute, and I kept trying to understand the worksheet and I couldn't, and my brain just wasn't working. I couldn't listen to music because zoom just mutes all other audio. My family keeps talking and moving around loudly and I just couldn't block anything out.

I just don't know what to do, and I'm still stressing about this because I can't just skip my next zoom class, and I can't just tell my family "hey, shut up, my brain is fixating on every little noise and you're part of the problem," so I just don't know what to do. I have so much work to do, and I can't focus because there's so much noise.
