misophonia?

By emily on September 6, 2020 5:12 pm

"Misophonia is a disorder in which certain sounds trigger emotional or physiological responses that some might perceive as unreasonable given the circumstance. Those who have misophonia might describe it as when a sound “drives you crazy.” Their reactions can range from anger and annoyance to panic and the need to flee." -web.md

i feel a need to flee
there's no escape
there's no place to hide

Love the voices that seem to appear and disappear like they're floating on the wind. They're amazing.

That's crazy.

Huh. I got stung behind the ear by a bee when I was a kid, now whenever I hear any kind of buzz anywhere within close proximity to my ears I reflexively smash my shoulder to the ear to block it off without even thinking. I don't know if that's exactly what that condition describes but maybe that's my excuse for acting suddenly crazy when a fly zips by haha.

Oh my that sounds traumatic! I think when you go through something like that with the bee of course your brain would rewire to say DANGER! DANGER! Not sure that's misophonia though cause that's a rational reaction to danger! sound stimuli - though I don't know a lot about it. 

I have sensory processing challenges & extra sensitive hearing (I can hear dog whistles & HF sounds not everyone can hear). I seem to have been wired that way from the get go however I had frontal lobe trauma in my teen years that I think also doesn't help with modulating emotions around the sensitive hearing. I only recently learned there was a word for this kinda sound sensitivity.

I can not ignore dog barking & it puts me in a rage.  Especially when it sounds like the animal is hurt or scared or plain being ignored.  I can't go back to sleep when the neighbors are yelling & I go right into fight or flight when I hear that. I get shaky and want to jump out of my skin when people are drunk and fighting, run air compressors, weed whackers, leaf blowers etc.  Certain chewing food sounds/saliva sounds etc. picked up in recordings make stomach turn.  I used to pop balloons as a child for fear of having to hear the balloon popping.  My poor little brother got so mad at me for popping his ballons but I lived in panic for the moment the balloon would pop without me knowing & scare me (it physically hurt).  I loose my train of thought & have physical reactions to it. Like right now the neighbor just turned on his air compressor & I'm struggling to get the words out on this comment...

Working on music and listening to music often helps when I can't block out the ambient sound around me - off to block out the air compressor wink
