I’ve been married for almost 9 years. I always have been sensitive to sounds since living with her like burping and throat clearing and constant throat clearing. I know she can’t help those things but my disorder has been becoming more and more intolerable. Recently my spouse had dental work but it’s incomplete due to our expenses so we have to wait on a more expensive surgery. Meantime for the last year or so every time she eats immediately after she begins picking her teeth or flossing with those disposable plastic floss sticks. She tends to snack a lot between meals so she’s literally picking her teeth just about every hour or so! I told her it annoys me but no changes have been made. I’ve began eating at a separate table, and while that helps a little, as soon as the meal is over and we watch tv or are in the living room the teeth picking starts. Sometimes she does it on and off for like 20 minutes! When she’s off from work and we spend the whole day together I dread mealtime or when she grabs a snack because I feel like I’m spending the entire day and night being subjected to hearing her pick her teeth! What can I do? Before the whole teeth issue I enjoyed spending time with her now I just brace myself for when she pulls out that pack of floss! Anyone else suffering similarly? Help please. Suggestions???
