I understand its allergy season, but how do you cope with being around people who are constantly snorting and clearing their throats? I have always been highly sensitive of certain noises and sounds but some things just drive me crazy. I have Misophonia or Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome (I didn't realize their was a name for it until recently). Its more than just a pet peeve. Things that drive me insane are: gum chewing, smacking, crunching, slurping, snoring, even something as simple as someone clinking a spoon against a bowl or plate. Going out to eat at a restaurant is always an uncomfortable experience for me. It seems like everything is in overdrive now. I feel like certain people that I am around and know that I cant stand certain sounds go out of their way to just irritate me. Does anyone else deal with this on a daily basis and how do you cope with it or not let it bother you?
