Are these things annoying you: Drinking, chewing, crunching, gulping, nail biting, slurping, swallowing, clicking, breathing, sniffling, wheezing, whistling, finger tapping, gum popping and really any other similar bodily action sound that is subtle yet persistent?
Many people find annoying at least one of these things. It means that we all have some sort of “condition” called Misophonia.
Misophonia means the hatred of sound. It’s the sound that has triggers and makes us mad. One of these sounds can overwhelm you. While the construction can be going on across the street, a man may chew loudly several feet away. But that sound will appear as if it’s the central sound all around you and drive you mad.
People make serious reactions with these and it has implications with relationships, family and friend gatherings. A sound from a guy popping his gum on the bus can totally drain your energy. You become anxious, irate, and in a foul mood for the next several hours. We especially zero in on this behavior when it comes from loved ones. You will really drive you up a wall by having your parent or your partner slurp their drink.
At work also you have to face with many difficulties as you have to deal with a variety of different people with potentially annoying sounding quirks that they do. It can become akin to torture for some people.
When people are annoyed in fear of making a huge issue out of something that seems small, they won’t bring attention it. They will bite their lip, roll their eyes, curse under their breath and privately become infuriated. You don’t want others to see you as a lightweight who can’t handle sounds, even though they are really annoying for you.
There’s not a pill to cure for Misophonia. But, by doing some simple things you can lessen the effects. You can tell your loved ones and co-workers at your job about this condition to solidify that it is a real thing.
Hypnotherapy can help you and you can also send triggers to your mind to basically counteract the triggers that annoy you.
