I’m sitting in an airport researching misophonia because I’m just now realizing this is a valid reason for why I’ve always suffered feelings of panic and anxiety around certain noises. Today, I’m being triggered by people playing Instagram/Tiktok videos out loud on their phones with no headphones. I think most people would find this behavior rude, but I hear these things and I have a fight or flight reaction, and since I’m a fairly passive person, I flee to areas with less acute noise. The drone of people passing through the terminal and rolling their suitcases doesn’t bother me.. but as soon as I hear someone playing personal music/audio out loud on poor quality phone speakers, I can’t focus on anything else. I get enraged. I feel validated that I’m not the only one that suffers this, I’m starting to realize I have other triggers. Cars passing by my house with the bass turned up is a big one. I have to stop my current activity until I no longer can hear it. I’m just afraid it will get worse as I learn more about misophonia.
