I’m 16, and a junior in high school. I’ve had misophonia since I was about 6 or 7 and have a wide range of triggers (mostly oral noises). I also have some misokensia, although probably not as bad as the misophonia.
I’m dreading the SAT. Not just for the normal people reasons, but because of all the leg bouncing. Because of Covid, we took the PSAT 10 this fall, and I found it hard to focus because of all the movement around me. At a break, a really nice teacher administering the test offered everyone mints, which was awful. I thought more about how much time I was losing focused on whether I should chew my mint to drown out the noise or conserve it than the actual PSAT questions in front of me.
We have to take the real SAT this spring, and I’m terrified that I’ll bomb it because of this. I can’t get any testing accommodations because 1) they take several weeks to process and 2) my small town doesn’t have any professionals that know enough to diagnose me with this or anything that would allow me to get accommodations.
Anyone else feeling this or something similar?
