It’s really relieving to hear from people who experience similar things, people normally think I’m crazy. My first memory of misophonia was in middle school when I went to overnight camp I’d cry all night because girls in my cabin were snoring and I couldn’t handle the sound. Also there was a girl in my class who was always twirling her hair and it drove me crazy not knowing why it bothered me so much. When I was in sixth grade I remember a boy sitting by me was shaking his leg and his pants were making a sound and I asked my teacher if she could ask him to stop because i couldn’t focus on anything else. My main triggers are around food/mouth sounds and breathing sounds. It’s very challenging to not get aggressive with people, but I think I’ve learned to handle it better over the years thankfully but sometimes the triggers are just unavoidable.
