There is a little-known psychiatric disorder out there that a lot of people suffer from. You probably know someone who has it. It’s called Misophonia, and it occurs when people get extremely distressed from hearing certain sounds… The word “Misophonia” means “hatred of sound,” but it refers to hatred of certain sounds, such as chewing, slurping, or anything you can imagine.
Although this disorder might seem comical and very light, it’s actually something people really struggle with. People with serious Misophonia get incredibly distressed when they hear the sounds that they hate… They become emotional, frustrated, and angry. It can affect relationships and their social lives deeply. So yes, this is a real thing!
