I didn't classify your experience as 'ridiculous'. I actually classified your comment about a subject that you appear to know little about as 'ridiculous'. I feel that in the circumstance of your opining on a valid condition that affects thousands of people quite so badly you should at least read more about it. It's not being a 'control freak' ...far from it. Most people I have spoken to about it have spent their lives getting away from situations that cause them uncontrollable panic.
In addition, I didn't descend to your gutter level by swearing or making personal insults. 'Wobbly pedestal' you say? At least I personally understand the subject of the article.
Ah what a joy to see that the art of balanced discussion and witty repartee is still with us.
Did you mean that I should stay 'at' home? I also assume by your use of the letter f that you are trying to swear at me, although it is difficult to read your semi-coherent ramblings (not entirely sure what a 'brurp' is, I have searched for the definition but it unfortunately eludes me).
Moving forward, why don't we see if you can construct a sensible and reasoned reply instead of the personal insults, swearing and nonsensical words that you have written so far.
I find it offensive that some people dismiss other's feelings and reactions so easily. Just because a condition is relatively unknown and has recently had attention drawn to it does not mean that it is any less debilitating for sufferers. I have had these bizarre symptoms for 30 years and finding information about misophonia was life changing. For someone like me knowing that other people are going through exactly the same experiences is so important. I think I must also draw attention to where the previous poster finds that he 'can't help but smile when I pay attention to the noises'. If you had any idea whatsoever about misophonia you would understand what a ridiculous comment that is to make. Anyone triggered by eating noises would be in the middle of a full-blown panic by then, let alone indulging a secret smile about the clearly loveable lip-smacking! If you don't understand or you can't be bothered to read more on the subject it would probably be better for you not to comment.
