Can You Please Not Chew So Loud?


Have you ever heard of Misophonia?

Well, if you become nauseous, or anxious, or angry, or distressed when you hear the sound of people chewing, you might not just be dramatic.

Well, okay, you might still be dramatic in other areas of life, but not this one.

It turns out that you are experiencing a medical condition known as Misophonia.

But, what does that even mean, and why did you get so unlucky as to experience it!?

While research is slightly limited on Misophonia, more and more people are relating to feeling triggered by certain sounds.

And, unfortunately, the condition can seriously hinder one’s personal and social life.

Try going out to eat, or hanging out with friends, or participating in other social events when there’s a chance you may become triggered by a noise as common as chewing gum.

With the research that has been done, we know that Misophonia causes actual emotional responses in several areas of the brain when activated.

    I also thought I was the only one, until I finally searched similarl things! Those who don’t have it seriously don’t get it, at all. All the noises, all the repetitive movements, they’ve triggered all the feelings.
