The Complete Guide to Coping with Misophonia

By Julia Odom: For More Info, Go Here…

Do noises like chewing, pen-clicking, or slurping send you into a rage? Here’s what you can do to cope with misophonia.

Everyone experiences problems with unpleasant sounds: maybe it’s a dog barking or a baby crying. That’s quite normal. What is not normal is when this becomes a daily or hourly occurrence, and when it starts to interfere with your life. That’s when it becomes clinical misophonia.

I have been suffering from this hidden mental condition since childhood, and I am learning every day how to manage it. I hope that by shedding some light onto this mysterious condition, I am able to help misophonia sufferers and to hopefully share some insight about how to cope with — and even possibly cure — this isolating condition. If you’re a person close to someone suffering from misophonia, I hope this article gives you a deeper understanding that may be helpful as well.
