Hi, I’m Jen. I developed misophonia around the age of 9-10. My family and I struggled with not knowing what it was, not knowing how to cope, and trying to navigate the world with this weird unknown. I didn’t even know the word “misophonia” until I was halfway through college. Then I kept it a secret because I was embarrassed and ashamed. I made it through university and grad school without telling soul and I suffered for it. So now I’m representing, advocating, and spreading awareness for misophonia so that no one else has to suffer in silence!
Hear more of my story and tips on the Misophonia Podcast – Season 3, Episode 5.
