-MISOPHONIA- Not sure where to put this question...
I have possibly a stupid question, and I know little about this subject, so please bear with me.
How did you all develop this condition?
I have an older friend who suffers from a severe case of Misophonia, and because of the considerable amount of time we spend together, I have become more and more aware of noises which affect him. It started off simply being so that I could refrain from making these noises, but because of my awareness of these noises, i have started noticing them in my day to day life as well. It has gotten to the point where if in class I hear a pen clicking in class, i have to ask that person to stop, and if it continues, I start to get quite annoyed and can experience mild ear pain. (I have also experienced this with tapping, keys jingling, etc)
So what I want to ask is, is it possible to develop Misophonia due to increased awareness of triggers? Is it possible i could have Misophonia?
