For me it’s mostly eating sounds (specifically slurping and the inhaling of food) and sniffling. Recently though I discovered that my coworker’s OCD need to continuously turn the dial on and then rattle their cabinet about five times before they can walk away is setting me off terribly (and if they are interrupted in any way they have to start again). It’s one problem slamming headfirst into another. I’ve gotten into the habit of trying to be out of the area when that person is getting ready to leave the office and I ear earphones when eating with my family.March 13, 2019 at 11:37 am #1009988
Co worker, constantly eating, the mouth movement, on the other side, I have people doing little jumps when their bum gets sore, singing away to the radio. One keeps shouting “Awsome” every few mins and saying “Know what I mean?”. Argh!!!March 14, 2019 at 9:19 am #1009993
Ever since I was between 11 and 13, the sounds of dogs chewing themselves, like an itch, or licking themselves drove me up the wall. I would always have to yell at my dog to stop licking because my body was filled with rage at the sounds of a dog licking or chewing. I love dogs, cats and overall an animal lover, but it’s specificallt dogs licking or chewing that triggers me to go from 0 to 60 in a heartbeat. It saddens me that I often yell at a dog or pat their nose to get them away from chewing or licking. They should be able to do whatever they want; they’re dogs for goodness sacks but for whatever reasons, this noise and the visuals trigger me and although I don’t have a dog as an adult, I have a hard time visiting friends or family because everyone has a dog and I feel like I’m constantly looking or listening for their dog to lick and chew and how I’m going to react in a polite manor. Often times I go to the bathroom and accidentally trip on the dog to get them to stop or move away. It saddens me that I have to stoop to this level but the noise triggers me to want to anything in order to stop the noise. It’s so tough and it wasn’t until this week when I came across “Misophonia” and could find a group of people I can relate too when everyone around me thinks I hate dogs.March 22, 2019 at 9:45 am #1010007
My co-worker drives me crazy with her lunch. The clinking of the bowl while she slurps up her lunch. She has to eat an apple EVERY afternoon and it drives me nuts.
