magic-in-us asked: Hi Nannah, ily. How are you doing? I've been reading about misophonia and first of, wanted to give you a big hug. In a way I'm glad that you have the answer. At least you know what's happening, right? I also wanted to ask you: would you be okay with talking about misophonia a little more and which sounds are most triggering for you? And maybe in general sense what you're learning about it and what we need to know? I think more people should know. If you're not comfortable I'd understand. HUGS!

Hi, MIU! <3 <3

Thank you so much for reading about misophonia. It really, really needs more awareness. I learned about this about two years ago and burst into tears. It described EXACTLY what I’d been going through since I was a kid.

So you know, this post is really long, but it’s also really important. I’ve never talked so much and openly about this before. 

Misophonia (literally “hatred of sound”) is a neurological disorder in which the brain processes certain sounds as DANGER! instead of background noise.

The first 50 seconds of this video do a good job showing how someone with misophonia can react to trigger noises.

An explanation:

The misophonic reaction appears to be an involuntary reflex caused by the sound.  The sound directly activates the Autonomic Nervous System which is located in the brain stem and the Limbic System which is associated with emotion.  This is a direct connection between the sound and a reflex reaction.  Think of the sound as causing the same reaction as a hard poke in the ribs with a stick. [x]

Some say it’s an acquired reflex (pairing a sound with a distressed physiological condition), and other’s say it’s a malfunction of the nervous system or the brain, but whatever causes it, it does seem to have a genetic connection… . It’s not been studied all that much.

I’m including all this info because when I talk about misophonia, there are always those folks who immediately say, “So I’m annoyed by people snapping gum; not everything’s a disorder,” or just “Get over it.” 

But the misophonic reaction is involuntary. It elicits a flight or fight response that can be so intense people with misophonia can be thrown into rages in which they harm themselves or others.

Here is a misophonia activation scale people use to judge how severe their misophonia is (I’m a 10, btw—a personal story beneath the cut).

As far as triggers go, I really don’t wanna list them out here, because it’s really easy for people with misophonia/misokinesia to pick up triggers. They’re behind the cut as well.

One more thing here because this post is really long. Misophonia is serious. I can’t eat with my family anymore, I can’t be around friends when they’re sick. I’ve dropped college classes because people’s noses whistled/whatever (running out crying no less and nearly flipping over a table in rage), I sometimes can’t stand to eat out in restaurants or hang out in public places. I can’t be around people in the morning (god, the yawning/heavy breathing). I schedule my life around this.

Anyway, triggers + personal stories under this (MAJOR SELF HARM CW, blood cw, and anxiety cw):
