    S6E14 - Eric

    S6E14 - Eric

    Eric had a pretty unique and difficult childhood growing up. As you’ll hear, he was always taken care of by his parents, but as the day progressed, there was often alcohol abuse and then some quite disturbing mental illness in his parents would reveal themselves. This was naturally very confusing for a child and led to many of the issues Eric has experienced since then. He’s actually only relatively recently seeked out therapy. We get into all that, we talk about chronic vs. singular trauma, going from a therapy novice to now being very proactive, and some uplifting messages about connecting with others and making yourself heard. Eric reached out some time after the interview wanting to talk a lot more about the specific therapies he has worked with so expect a part 2 episode in the new year.

    S6E13 - Michael (Treatment Tracker)

    You may know Michael from his Facebook Group “Misophonia Treatment Tracker”. Michael has been pursuing treatment for his misophonia for over 40 years. He’s got a wealth of knowledge and experience and has had a lot of time to think about this condition and its effects on our minds, bodies, and relationships. We talk about a lot of stuff in this fascinating conversation: obviously his origin story, his family life growing up and marriages since then, we get into primal therapy, internal family systems, memory reconsolidation, polyvagal theory, epigenetics, and even how he uses ketamine now. Plus, many great book recommendations at the end.

    S6E11 - Lynn

    Lynn is a music and entertainment lawyer in New York. She doesn’t have the normal mouth sound triggers many of us do - hers are more machine-oriented. We talk about HSP, her career as a therapist before going into law, how different cultures react to misophonia and other mental health conditions, as well as our recommendations for quiet kitchen appliances. I also give Lynn my thoughts on how to eat if and when we have a meal in NY.

    S6E9 - Makayla

    Makayla has misophonia and was also recently diagnosed with autism. This is a long one where we talk about Misophonia’s place in neurodivergent culture, her experience growing up with miso and now having the language to express to others how she feels, her coping methods, how she focuses on her nervous system, and we end with some thoughts on the empathetic superpowers misophones can demonstrate to the world.

Empowering and Impactful

I’m listening to other people’s stories and I have never felt so understood. I’ve always known I suffer from this, but only recently realized there is a language to it, as well as an accepting community. I have always chosen to suffer instead of speak up for myself, but this podcast is empowering me to try something new. Especially now that my child is now experiencing it, too. Thank you to everyone willing to share your story!

Thank you

Thank you to Adeel for creating this podcast and making misophones out there feel less crazy/terrible/guilty/alone 👂🏻👂🏼👂🏽👂🏾👂🏿

B-view Review ,

Life-changing.

I’ve long and often thought about how great it would be to have a resource like this and I’m so grateful Adeel has created and maintains this podcast. The pandemic has been incredibly hard for so many of us and I found myself searching desperately for some sense of community and true understanding. This podcast has gone a very long way to help me feel less isolated and less like a terrible person due to my experience of misophonia. Just listening to other people and their stories helps me feel more seen and understood - and less guilty for my experience/thoughts/feelings. I can not understate how vital and life changing this simple thing can be. I highly recommend anyone affected by misophonia (including loved ones of misophones) listen to these episodes. I’d love for my loved ones/family/friends to listen - I think it would help them tremendously in their understanding of their relationships with me.
