I can’t think clearly when I’m hearing trigger sounds. My only thought is of the need to escape.
Misophonia, meaning a 'hatred of sounds', has become quite the click-bait darling e.g. "Want to know why you hate other people chewing?" In fact, many of the referrals I receive are from those who have searched online for their condition and then self-diagnosed
My suspicion is that because brain imaging can trace a brain response from a trigger such as sound to an emotion such as anger, scientists are saying that it is a done deal. Look, there is the link on the screen, those links are how things are, no cure.
I'm talking, if you haven't already guessed, about misophonia. Misophonia is, if you like, a fancy word for the hypersensitivity to sound. It's my belief that there are more people out there who experience this than know they experience it. I didn't know there were others out there like me until a few months ago.
