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.


If you listen well, you can hear yourself chewing food. You're as gross as the person to your right or left.

Today's my 17th anniversary.  Wife said the blessing over the food, and she included she was thankful for the first 17 years, and hopes to have many more.  After she was done, I said, "Well, there goes my parole hearing.  I was denied."  If you take yourself too serious, you're only going to become insufferable, then bye-bye marriage.  It's just as important to know when to stop teasing as well, and no one outside should decide when that is.

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.

I tried to be normal once.  But then I discovered it was impossible because normal people would think some thing like the above is actually a thing.  I've never been any situation where Kim Kardashian's name came up.  Let alone one where it was mispronounced.  I have always pronounced Kanye's name Caine.  Just because I was too lazy to fully read his name.

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.

26 years, is that long enough for you?  I don't disrespect her, I never talk bad about her, I don't denigrate her, yes I tease her still, and still flirt, but there are some things you just don't do because you know there are things that really make the skin crawl.


Married even longer after living together for a while, and I agree this is not teasing this is both of them being purposely mean to the other all as a "joke".  This is far from a healthy relationship.

My wife and I tease each other, for example I'll sneak a pinch of her butt or quickly hug her from behind and put my hands over her boobs when no one can see us just to hear her squeak.  But the thing is I respect her boundaries, I never do this in public or in front of the kids, I don't do it if she is tired or feeling sick, and I know that as much as sometimes she wishes I didn't she is also happy that I do because it shows her how much she still turns me on if that makes sense.   We tease but it is always something where it make us both realize how much we love the other.  This couple is just nasty, they are not teasing they are showing how much they hate the other.

Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: My son has misophonia but unfortunately the sound that sets him off is caused by my daughters and my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) which cause our jaws and thus mouths to make noises as we move things so that we do not feel pain.

When it started I would just play music as we ate, then he was on the other side of the table, and eventually upstairs.  If I am around him I clench my jaws and speak that way as he does not hear the noise that bothers him.  If we are in a situation where it is hard to hear me, if I am shouting from a distance, or if as I said above my jaw does not move he is fine.

Misophonia sucks.

How old is your son?  Just curious.

He is now 16, started to bug him at 13-14 but it was at first get the music volume up, then get him a bit away (he was now always behind me in the back seat of the car), then it was could I clench my jaw and eventually he gave up and went upstairs at dinner and would wear headphones in the car.

Now my wife says my daughter and I make noise as we talk and eat that she can hear (it is apparently a a click, click with a smack, smack).  I have never gone in for treatment but my daughter has and while it has helped her jaw to be more comfortable (especially important as she is a musician) is has never totally removed what has bugged my son.

We are all working on it, believe it or not if we talk LOUD it makes a difference for him, I guess our jaws and mouth act differently.  Eating still sucks but we spend other times together.  So now we shout a lot at each other, but very happily.

I'm glad you have worked out some of the querks and wish your family the best.  I was not familiar with this unique disorder so I have learned something today.  Best to you.

My father has a rare condition called "MSA"  Multiple System Atropthy.  It's so uncommon that that Johns Hopkins has had him in for studies.


When the specialist they send you to says "I have never seen this before" it is time to say "farkkkk......"

That sounds like my wife, she has a form of Myasthenia Gravis that her current doctor who is a nationally recognized researcher says no one ever has...and she has it (I do not know it he finally ended up publishing her case).  You do not want to be this patient, EVER!  You want to be boring, you want to hear "here is a shot and/or pill and call me in two weeks if you don't feel better".  Good luck to your Dad, I hope they can find a treatment (my wife has been doing reasonably well for almost a decade now).

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.

I know this is very generalized and very anectdotal ...

From my observations and experience: men tend to be less concerned with method than women are as long as the end result is the same. The nagging reflects that.
- typical guy: he usually just wants "X" to get done, and once it's done, he's happy.
- typical gal: she's much more likely to specify exactly how she wants "X" to be done.

I agree, and note that in my limited dataset, gals will restate ALL the required steps even if the guy is doing step 3 of 5...

Mrs South, when challenged, will respond, "I just want to be shure..."

DoctorCal: Phelon Hardtimes: I'm sorry for your loss.

interstellar_tedium: You take care of yourself,

Sympathies and well-wishes appreciated, and returned.
I'm good. The intervening decade has been rich and eventful, so the recollections are now nearly always joyful.


That is good, I am glad to hear it.  Give him one toast for me, I will toast my Dad in September with a Vernors Ginger Ale which is what we used to drink when we went fishing.

Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: Phelon Hardtimes: interstellar_tedium: My son has misophonia but unfortunately the sound that sets him off is caused by my daughters and my TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) which cause our jaws and thus mouths to make noises as we move things so that we do not feel pain.

When it started I would just play music as we ate, then he was on the other side of the table, and eventually upstairs.  If I am around him I clench my jaws and speak that way as he does not hear the noise that bothers him.  If we are in a situation where it is hard to hear me, if I am shouting from a distance, or if as I said above my jaw does not move he is fine.

Misophonia sucks.

How old is your son?  Just curious.

He is now 16, started to bug him at 13-14 but it was at first get the music volume up, then get him a bit away (he was now always behind me in the back seat of the car), then it was could I clench my jaw and eventually he gave up and went upstairs at dinner and would wear headphones in the car.

Now my wife says my daughter and I make noise as we talk and eat that she can hear (it is apparently a a click, click with a smack, smack).  I have never gone in for treatment but my daughter has and while it has helped her jaw to be more comfortable (especially important as she is a musician) is has never totally removed what has bugged my son.

We are all working on it, believe it or not if we talk LOUD it makes a difference for him, I guess our jaws and mouth act differently.  Eating still sucks but we spend other times together.  So now we shout a lot at each other, but very happily.

I'm glad you have worked out some of the querks and wish your family the best.  I was not familiar with this unique disorder so I have learned something today.  Best to you.

My father has a rare condition called "MSA"  Multiple System Atropthy.  It's so uncommon that that Johns Hopkins has had him in for studies.


Apologies. I neglected to extend my sympathy. Please accept it.

My roommate has this, and no, he doesn't eat with the family anymore.
Now, when he does it, it's perfectly acceptable. I'm not sure if you can subconsciously be a hypocrite, but there it is.

How do people with misophonia survive some asian cultures with the slurping noises?  From my limited understanding some people just are wired for this issue, but I have never seen a cultural breakdown of this issue.  I have a Chinese co-worker who is the loudest eater I know and cultura

Spanky McStupid: That freaking Benefull commercial where the "dog" narrates while eating makes me want to punch the Pope.


There was a woman I worked with that would be eating on EVERY farking conference call she was ever on. I think she ate every single minute of the day. She would sound just like that dog. There were times I would just drop because it was making me climb the walls.

She was also that person that would microwave fish and burn popcorn too so...

You know that loud, sharp noise when you drop the toilet seat from full height?  If I hear anything like that, I try to snap the necks of anyone within reach.

MSBFDffpm: 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.

That's why we have discussions around our dinner table...it drowns out the munching.

/except where there's always one person who talks with her mouth full of food

*giggity*

Your Dance Instructor: bingethinker: After reading the article, I think he can do way better than her. He's far too forgiving of her childish tantrums.
