I took the MAQ, my results being severe misophonia. My family is almost always very understanding and considerate, and I’m very glad that they are. The only problem is my parents acknowledge and accept my problem, but years ago they said not to give it a name (misophonia) because then it gets power over me (name or no, I’ve still had issues for 8 years) I haven’t brought it up since. However, if the bluetooth earbuds that I’m going to try don’t work for me at school (I’m on summer break now), I want to see if the hearing aids that are recommended for people with misophonia would work for me and be affordable. However, in order to do so, I would have to tell my parents why I want to go and how I found out about these hearing aids (which was by doing research on misophonia), as I would probably want to see an audiologist, and they would have to pay and drive me (I’m 15). Is there anyone else who has someone not accepting what its it’s called? And does anyone have any advice on how to get them to accept it as misophonia?
The more they see you being affected by triggers, the more they will understand. Maybe play on it a litle bit to speed things up? Try to do it in a way you don’t get or show anger as this usually doesn’t help.
