Hi Mia, and everyone else who has commented in this thread.
I just want to say I hope you are all doing ok, you’ve got this. I totally empathise with that feeling of everything being too much and no-one understanding from the bottom of my heart. It’s SO hard but you can do this. Things get better.
You are absolutely not alone. This is a whole community right here that has your back and understands what you’re going through.
If you have time check out some of the coping mechanisms (many of which have come from the community) here:
If you’re having a suicidal thoughts, please please talk to someone and let them know. Don’t bottle it up inside, get help and talk it through. Speak to a parent, teacher or professional – someone you trust right away. Nothing’s worth going to that place.
I know parents often just ‘don’t get it’ and it can be frustrating. They can’t know what it’s like to be in your brain so they might need a little help and information about misophonia to get up to speed. Give them time and information and talk to them about it when you’re not in the midst of the misophonia as this will be when they are most receptive. Obviously feel free to send them here or to other resources (Misophonia International are also good)
