I can't believe this amazing news I just found out via Pinterest. And then via Google. Clearly, its legitimate.
Wait. Let's back up...
There are other examples too. TC slurps his coffee and I physically shudder. And get mad. Then I hit him in the leg.
A kid takes a big sniff instead of blowing their nose and I have to look the other way and gag.
Someone chews their food in a quiet place (cough, cough, TC). I get mad. Then I get goosebumps and want to puke.
Really, my weird sound issues are a problem. I manage it fairly well in public (sometimes) but it isn't easy.
Today I was scrolling through Pinterest and see this random fact about Misophonia, which I've obviously never heard of. Who has? It can't be real.
I can't believe it so instantly I get on Google to check it out. According to www.misophonia.info this is a legitimate disorder. It says that Misophonia is "literally the hatred of sound" and is usually a sound that most people generally ignore. It says that the sound actually causes rage and panic.
Okay, in all fairness the article does also describe more extreme symptoms and issues, which I don't have. I think it is safe to say that I'm a fairly mild case. But nonetheless I have a legitimate excuse now! TC can no longer scowl at me when I hit him in the leg for slurping his coffee. Best news ever!
Has anyone heard of this disorder? Does anyone else have a hatred of certain sounds?
Maybe it's just me and I'm the only one who legitimately gets mad at coffee slurping, like the world has its own vendetta against me. cough, cough, TC...
