Did anyone see 20/20 the other night? My condition, or disease as I like to call it, finally has a name!
Some of you know that i have posted over time about my hatred for leaf blowers, dogs barking etc. There's a name for it; MISOPHONIA!
THere was a whole segment about it on 20/20 the other night and now I don't feel like a psycho for getting crazy over noises. Apparently Kelly Ripa has the same problem. LOL! Me n' Kelly....
and...all the sounds that drive me nuts are listed as symptoms. It's some kind neurological disorder and they can't figure out where it comes from. But at least I know I'm not alone :) other people hate typing fingernails, chomping, gum cracking, dogs barking, etc., to the point where you feel rage!! I know it's weird, and of course my family thinks it's hilarious, but I feel validated :)
anyway, that's it. I'm happy to have a name for it and a new routine for my act. what disease are you suffering from? :) Hope you're having a beautiful sunday!
ps. there's an online support group for it :)
