Misophonia, literally “hatred of sound,” is a form of decreased sound tolerance.

Do you ever become annoyed, or even enraged, by such ordinary sounds as other people eating, breathing, sniffing, or coughing; certain consonants; or repetitive sounds? If so, you may suffer from misophonia.

It's not that uncommon, but not easily understood. It can be easy to push away, or be pushed away, by friends and family because something you can't control or explain.

You are not alone! With your help, this community can help each other in finding ways in not only helping to cope, but helping in providing an explanation for friends, family, coworkers, and others that you aren't just being a jerk, but that you do have a real problem.

A good place to start a self diagnosis is The Misophonia Activation Scale
