Oh – I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to hear someone else talk about this!! It’s only a couple of weeks since I heard about misophonia, and to know it is an actual issue has made such a difference. And now someone else who has the issue with bass noises, and the emotional responses depending on its source. It’s Friday night in my country town, and I’m waiting for the parties to start. I will be in the midst of a cacophony of bass, coming from all directions, and I know I will just have to turn the TV up louder and louder to get over it. I have tried all sorts of things to get over this. Meditation, psychologists. Ear plugs, head sets. I have a drawer full of different earplugs – I’m sure others can relate! It’s the bass that really gets to me. Fortunately I now live on my own, so all the breathing and chewing and tapping noises are over and done with (and, by and large, a headset at work keeps me sane). Any solutions to the bass noise? It has got me into so much hot water with neighbours – makes me want to go and meditate up a high mountain miles from any other human (and definitely miles from any source of electricity!). Thanks for listening!!
