I have the same problem. I was diagnosed with misophonia in the summer. I won't even go to movies until the movie is just about to be yanked from the theatre, that way there is less people in the theatre. My biggest irritant is the sniffles. Absolutely drives me nuts. I have to take my mp3 player with me whenever I go out. Hearing people chew their food or seeing people chew with their mouth open is also a huge irritant.
I did some research about this with my dr and she said that this irritability is one manifestation of bipolar level 2. Some people with bipolar 2 experience hypomania, which is a milder form of mania. With hypomania, some people become productive and enjoy this stage of their illness. But the exact opposite can happen. With some bipolar 2 people, their hypomania exibits itself in the form of extreme irritability. Just something to think about.
...Deep in my soul, I've been so lonely
All of my hopes, fading away
I've longed for love, like everyone else does
I know I'll keep searching, even after today
So there it is girl, I've said it all now
And here we are babe, what do you say?
We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?...
