It's not teasing when it's misophonia.  It's torture.

Thong_of_Zardoz: abhorrent1: Misophonia, if you didn't know, is a sensitivity to certain noises. Teresa can't handle listening to people eating loudly.

I totally have that. I CAN NOT stand eating sounds. I've had to get up from the table and leave the room to go eat my myself more times that I can remember. If we're at my house, I usually have a radio or TV on for some background noise, but sitting silently at a table listening to people eat makes me murdery.

Same here. Corn on the cob is especially troublesome for me.



For me, it's any periodic sound, including ticking clocks and windshield wipers.  I have to keep some Ativan or Xanax on hand.

StaleCoffee: Yeah, there's no such thing as misophonia. It's even less real than the mid-life crisis. What you actually have is "I'm an intolerant whiny coont" syndrome.


Even if it's as simple as "I don't like that," you're still being an enormous dick if someone expresses that preference and you ignore it or go out of your way to make them experience it. Imagine someone forced you to eat some food you don't care for, and then revisit your thoughts on the matter.

zeppo_shemp: basemetal: 'I just found this video of a person crunching really loudly, and she told me to stop playing it,' said Rob. 'I just played it to her over and over again

So, you know that irritates the shiat out of her, but you do it anyway.  Some might see this as mental abuse, and it hurts some people as much as physical abuse.

Difficult for me to judge on the context of a short news story.

He could be a total ahole who deliberately provokes his wife hoping to get a response, or is insensitive to how much it bothers her.

She could be a controlling shrew who uses her condition (or perhaps "condition") as a tool to manipulate. Or maybe she married a handsome boor and her plan to class him up has not worked as planned.

Given that she resorted to public shaming of her spouse, I am leaning towards the second paragraph. but I also think these two deserve each other. Water finds its own level where birds of a feather are flocking.

I know misiphonia is real. I have not been formally diagnosed but certain sounds are majorly irritating to me in a way others don't grasp.  I didn't buy $300 Bose headphones for the audiophile sound but for the noise canceling.

However, I also know more than a few self-diagnosed people who use their malady like a weapon in wars of attrition with family.


Audiophiles don't buy Bose or noise-cancelling.

When do we stop counting?  I'm at least 7 years free.  I think I may be closer to like, 10.


Are we talking about the Glory of a Facebook-Free life? Because I don't know what that is. I delete the app every other month and allow myself two visits per week via the internet. If I can go one week sans the FB, I buy myself something nice. Fark me. It's a vicious cycle. No one posts anything besides their kids/meals/vacations/pets. And no one notices me if I'm gone! Not even my husband. OMGSTFU - I hate Facebook. (● ˃ロ˂)੭ꠥ⁾⁾

I don't know that there's any particular food for me. It's chewing/smacking sounds, heavy breathing and especially swallowing noises.

If I see a commercial for like Gatorade or some other drink and they use glug glug swallowing sounds as they show them drinking it, it makes me want to stab a baby.

Umfufu: Isn't Misophonia a mental illness, and part of the autism spectrum?


My shrink says my misophonia is a direct result of my ADHD.  The part of my brain that's suppose to filter out what's important (and thus, what I'm supposed to pay attention to) and what's not important (and consequently, can be ignored) is broken.  As a result, stuff that's supposed to fall into the background (including noises) doesn't, and I end up focusing on them.  For us ADHDers/misophoniacs, there is no ability to ignore or tune out unpleasant sounds.

For me, regular and periodic noises are especially bad.  I can't be in the same room as a ticking analog clock, for example.  My shrink has such a clock in his office, and the very first thing I do at our visits is remove his clock from the wall and pull out the batteries; when I leave, I put the batteries back in and reset the time.

Windshield wipers, too (I use Rain-X and avoid windshield wipers unless I absolutely must use them).  My husband's snoring (we sleep in separate rooms).   Even my own heartbeat (just one of dozens of reasons I struggle to fall asleep).  With periodic noises, I end up anticipating the next occurrence and it leads to a shiat ton of anxiety (like, full-on fight-or-flight response, complete with chest tightness and the inability to breathe).

Yeah, it's all probably part of some general "sensory processing disorder" which is common among autistic people, too.

It all sucks.

At least half the cases of nagging I have known have involved a spouse who just doesn't follow through on stuff they said they would do in hopes the other will come in and clean up the mess, so the other spouse starts to remind them more, so the first one passive aggressively starts "forgetting"  more often, which leads to more reminders and either separate bedrooms or a divorce.

And why is it only called "nagging" if she does it?

Guys can nag, but apparently do so at a rate or in such a way that a lot fewer women complain about it than do men.
