I was around 7 when I had my first trigger.

I was in my bed, watching Prince Caspian (from the Narnia series) with my sister. About halfway through, she went and got grapes. She was right next to my ear, and the first few were fine, but then it just started bothering me. I moved the kindle we were watching the movie on to the other side of the bed so I could lay on my stomach and avoid the noise. She soon joined me. When I couldn’t take it any longer, I asked her to stop. She asked me why and I said I didn’t know. I hadn’t had any aversion to sound until then.

I told my family it was bothering me because at that point, only some foods bothered me and I couldn’t stand eating at some meals with them.

It was about another four/five years before I even heard about misophonia.
